REMINDER CFP ReFocus: The Films of Pablo Larraín

Thursday, November 23, 2017 - 9:43pm
Laura Hatry, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid

One of the central figures in contemporary Chilean film, director Pablo Larraín (b. 1976), presents a harsh portrait of his country’s current reality and of its tortured history in a direct, sometimes surprising, and often controversial oeuvre, never demurring in the face of violence or painful truths about the past. His first feature film, Fuga (2006), which was poorly received by critics, focuses on a composer’s mental health issues; his striking trilogy about Chile’s recent history covers the Pinochet dictatorship in Tony Manero (2008), the last days of the Allende presidency in Post mortem (2010), and the democratic downfall of Pinochet in 1988 in NO (2012).

One of the most original contributions of the so-called new childhood studies is the shift away from earlier notions of a “universal child” (marked by biological as much as cultural and psychological universals, cutting across all cultural and social groups) to the idea of childhood as a social construct, contingent on historically and culturally situated realities. Starting in the 1980s, researchers have increasingly placed emphasis on children as “agents” and “beings” in their own right, whereas before childhood was conceptualized as a social structure and a state of becoming toward fully realized human adults (James and Prout 1990).
