LA HORTÚA / LA MULTITUD

Thursday, 29.11.2018 at 7:30pm
The screening is followed by a talk with Rosario Talevi

After its closure by the Colombian government in 2001, the legendary hospital La Hortúa in Bogotá was squatted in by former employees and their families. Andrés Cháves’ short documentary observes their daily routines in the solitude of the crumbling buildings. In La Multitud, Martín Oesterheld looks at two derelict entertainment complexes in Buenos Aires built during different dictatorships, nowadays mainly traversed by migrants living in the area: a city shown from its ends.
