Latin Thrills

Political Thrillers from South America 

Latin Thrills brings together filmmakers, authors, journalists, and scholars for a conversation on one of the most popular genres of our times: the political thriller. Alternating glimpses of documentary interviews with directors and film critics, along with live discussion involving film practitioners and scholars, this event will explore Latin America, its politics and history, the boundaries of the personal and the political, the role of precarity, and the transnational impact of the genre, as seen in recent films made in Argentina, Uruguay and Chile, such as Clandestine Childhood (2011), Operation Carrot (2014), Rojo (2018) and The Rescue: The Weight of the World (2023).

Panel Discussion
Fabricio Tocco, Lecturer in Spanish, Australian National University  
Claudie Sandberg, Senior Lecturer in Film, University of Melbourne 
Luis Gómez Romero, Senior Lecturer in School of Law, University of Wollongong
