"Institutions of Fear/Els Internats de la Por"
(2016, dir. Montse Armengou and Ricard Belis, Catalonia, 75 min., in Catalan and Spanish w/ English subtitles)
This provocative documentary broadcast on Catalan public television explores a silenced aspect of the contemporary history of Spain where, unlike in Ireland where mistreatment of children under state care has been acknowledged, such cases have not been prosecuted.
In collaboration with the 10th annual Catalan Film Festival.
Directors Montse Armengou and Ricard Belis will be present for discussion.
Introduction by Sebastiaan Faber (Oberlin College).
