In addition, we invite students and colleagues to the Hay Forum Course, Art and Fire: A Journey in Five Films. This is available for free to the first 50 to complete the course registration.

The Colombian philosopher and writer Óscar Guardiola-Rivera offers us a fascinating course in which, based on the analysis of five films, he approaches the global reality, especially the Latin American one. In addition, the course explores multiple references to cinema, music, essays and philosophy, to map contemporary Latin American culture and thus unravel concepts such as class, race, colonialism or capitalism. Alejandro Jodorowsky, Cristina Gallego, the Tricontinental, contemporary Brazilian cinema, Andrea Echeverri, Amerindian perspectivism and Óscar Murillo are some of the references that we will find.

We hope to see you there!!
