“No forgiving; no forgetting,” is a phrase you often see painted on the walls or written on protest signs in Chile. This reflects the attitude of many generations of struggle that continue to thrive despite severe state repression. This film screening will include three short documentaries that focus on the student movement, women’s rights and indigenous land reclamation. The filmmaker will be present to facilitate a conversation about what we can learn from these movements.

Pressured by the media, their peer group, and even the adults in their lives, our protagonists confront messages encouraging them to disconnect from their emotions, devalue authentic friendships, objectify and degrade women, and resolve conflicts through violence. These gender stereotypes interconnect with race, class, and circumstance, creating a maze of identity issues boys and young men must navigate to become “real” men. Experts in neuroscience, psychology, sociology, sports, education, and media also weigh in, offering empirical evidence of the “boy crisis” and tactics to combat it. The Mask You Live In ultimately illustrates how we, as a society, can raise a healthier generation of boys and young men. http://www.facebook.com/events/1278761455473478/

FILM SCREEENING AND DISCUSSION ABOUT THE LASTING IMPACTS OF THE U.S.-FUNDED MILITARY COUP IN CHILE ON SEPTEMBER 11TH, 1973 Chile is often considered the laboratory for the United States’ neoliberal economic policies because of the extreme privatization measures imposed on the country during the 17-year Pinochet dictatorship that worked closely with Milton Friedman and the University of Chicago to turn these economic policies into law. Despite the return to “democracy” in 1990, Chile has continued to honor and uphold the constitution written during the Pinochet dictatorship. This film screening will include two 30-minute documentaries that focus on Mapuche land reclamation and language revitalization as well as a discussion with the filmmaker about the specific laws that have been used to target the indigenous Mapuche people since the dictatorship began in 1973. •Weichanmu: we are going to war follows a Mapuche community in the midst of being evicted from their land as they question the presence of the forestry industry in their territory, the legitimacy of the state and the capitalist system whose advance is a direct threat to the survival of Mapuche culture, thought and way of life. •Zuguleaiñ: we will speak explores the potential disappearance of the Mapuche language and cultural identity. It documents the journey of four Mapuche youth from across Chile as they join a growing movement to learn and revitalize their language, Mapuzugun. The continuation of many of Pinochet’s neo-liberal policies and human rights violations, despite the country’s supposed return to democracy, has left many Chileans and Indigenous Peoples questioning the legitimacy of this political system. Come be a part of this disucssion as we explore the influence of U.S. foreign policy, the Pinochet dictatorship and the continued oppression of the Mapuche people in southern Chile.
