NC Latin American Film Festival, ‘Caiga Quien Caiga | All Can Fall’

October 25, 2019 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Vladimiro Montesinos, head of Peru’s secret police and former president Alberto Fujimori’s closest adviser, spun a tight web of illegal activities. That web began to untangle when a video showing Montesinos attempting to bribe a congressman became public. Based on lead prosecutor José Ugaz’s memoir, Eduardo Guillot’s fast-paced thriller depicts his investigation as a cat and mouse game between a wily political operative and a straight arrow determined to bring him down no matter the consequences.

Following the film, there will be discussion with Peruvian film scholar Pablo Celis-Castillo from Elon University.
