NC Latin American Film Festival, ‘Invasión | Invasion’

November 4, 2019 at 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

The invasion of Panama by the U.S in Christmas and New Year of 1989 – when American troops deposed dictator Manuel Noriega, killing an unknown number of civilians in the process – serves as an example to explore how a people remember, transform and often forget their past in order re-define their identity and become who they are today. Invasion (2014, 94 min.), fdirected by Abner Benaím, documents the collective memory utilizing a combination of reenactments and interviews of the 1989 U.S. invasion: defense forces who fought symbolic battles, politicians who justify their actions and friends of the church, from civilians to former General Noriega.
