Arts & Entertainment, History & Education

Despite the lack of science fiction in the Latin American film industry, there are some overlooked exceptions that silently appeared during the bloodiest years of censorship. This lecture will focus on Argentine science fiction from the 60s and the parallels between the use of science fiction motifs and Argentine history. Explore how this genre uses the dialectics of Latino identity as a means of questioning and resisting an environment of constant socio-political terror, and what contemporary sci-fi can learn from these origins.
