Join the Boston Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Oct 2nd at 7pm for My Imaginary Country at the Brattle Theatre. Look for Sean wearing a nametag in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
MY IMAGINARY COUNTRY is a thrilling, inspiring account of one country’s surge towards a reappraisal of their entire system of government that, sometimes painfully, reflects the situation in the US today. An initial vote on the new constitution will be held on Sept 4, but whatever the citizens of Chile ultimately decide, Guzman’s stirring documentary–as with his other films about the history of his beloved country–will remain a powerful testament to the ongoing struggle for justice and freedom in Chile–a struggle that reverberates around the world. Over 40 years since The Brattle first hosted the New England premiere of Guzman’s monumental THE BATTLE OF CHILE, we are thrilled to feature another chapter in his ongoing passion project which seeks to document the soul of a country.
Note: As always, be sure to check the club webpage/twitter/facebook the day of in case of last minute changes. Please wear a mask and observe all local ordinances and venue policies.
