“Beyond Borders” Festival travels to York University (UK)!
27 – 31 October 2019
Following an invitation received from York University (Honorary Academic institution at the 4th edition of the Festival ), “Beyond Borders” will travel to York University between 27-31 October 2019, where it will screen some of its award-winning films. More specifically, the films that will be shown are:
“The Silence of Others” |Almudena Carracedo & Robert Bahar, Spain, USA 2018, 96′
BEST HISTORY DOCUMENTARY “Beyond Borders” 2019
The elder María Martín lost her mother when she was murdered by the Franko regime and she is one the 100.000 Spaniards in mass graves. Now, one whole lifetime later, María and many other Spaniards are seeking justice for Franco’s victims, but Spanish law stands in their way. Directors Almudena Carracedo and Robert Bahar with producer Pedro Almodóvar try to give voice to the demands of their fellow citizens.
“Children Below Deck” | Bettina Henkel, Austria, 2018, 90′
BEST SOCIO-POLITICAL DOCUMENTARY “Beyond Borders” 2019
The film tells the story of three generations: the (late) grandmother, the father and the daughter, who directs. The central theme is the transfer of the traumatic experience from generation to generation and illustrates the apparent influence that the historical changes of north-east Europe have had on the protagonist’s psyche.
Screening place: Holbeck Cinema, York University – Film, Television and Interactive Media Department
Screening time: 18:30
