Screening and discussion of "La Palabra en el Bosque/The Word in the Woods"

March 20th, 2017
6:00 PM

Location
Richardson Building 117

What is the relationship between history and documentary film and between academic authority and symbolic violence? Join us for a screening and discussion of these issues.

Co-directed by Gould (Professor of Central American history at Indiana University Bloomington) and Carlos Henríquez Consalvi (founder of the FLMN‘€™s Radio Venceremos and founding director of El Museo de la Palabra y la Imagen in El Salvador), this documentary uses the narratives of surviving witnesses to explore liberation theology and conflict in the department of Morazán, El Salvador, from the early 1970s through the country‘€™s civil war, which cost an estimated 75,000 lives.

Gould is a leading scholar on the history of indigenous communities, labor, revolution, and collective memory in Central America, author of To Lead as Equals: Rural Protest and Political Consciousness in Chinandega, Nicaragua, 1912-1979 (1990), To Die in this Way: Nicaraguan Indians and the Myth of Mestizaje, 1880-1965 (1998) and To Rise in Darkness: Revolution, Repression, and Memory in El Salvador, 1920-1932 (2008, co-authored with Aldo Lauria-Santiago). “La Palabra en el Bosque” is his second co-directed documentary film and the discussion will take up issues of both the relationship of history to filmmaking and of academic authority and symbolic violence.
