Film Screening of Irán #3037 [violencia politico sexual en dictadura] (Iran #3037: Political Sexual Violence under the Dictatorship)
Iran #3037 was a clandestine center of detention and torture under the brutal regime of General Augusto Pinochet. Referred to as The Sexy Blindfold (La Venda Sexy) or the Discotheque, it was known for sexual violation and abuse. Today it is a site of protest as activists call for the house to be transformed into a feminist memorial site. Iran #3037 powerfully dramatizes the situation of the family living in the house today and the struggle surrounding the site. The drama had a long run in Chile, playing in the National Theater of Chile as part of a “Theater in Emergency” cycle. While the play deals with the past, it hit a chord with the public as it seemed to dramatize the police violence surrounding the recent social uprising (estallido social) as well.
Please join us for the first film screening of Iran #3037 in the United States followed by a conversation with the director, Patricia Artés Ibañez. The film is subtitled in English.
Patricia Artés Ibañez is a Chilean researcher and feminist theater director. She holds a Ph.D. in Interdisciplinary Studies in Thought, Culture and Society from the University of Valparaíso. She has co-authored an anthology of 20th-century women’s playwrights, Evidencias, las otras dramaturgias (Evidence: the Other Playwrights).
The event will be introduced by Terri Gordon, Associate Professor of Comparative Literature, Schools of Public Engagement.
This is an in-person event.
