Mario Opazo
Saturday 28 November, 6:30 p.m.

The Terrario's screenings are an audiovisual proposal that regularly presents videos, documentaries, and films related to the Intermediæ's programming. The next programme presents Amargo como la vida. This documentary offers a critical and poetic portrayal of the living conditions of Western Saharan refugees in camps in Algeria. Mario Opazo has been publicizing his work for the cause of the Saharawi people, a society that has spent over 35 years in exile, demanding the return of their land, the Western Sahara, invaded by Morocco. The artist visited the refugee camps in June 2008. Since his return to Latin America, he has been raising public awareness about the Saharawis’ situation. This documentary is one of the means used to publicize the RASD cause.

SCREENINGS AT TERRARIO / AQUÍ SE CONSTRUYE (O YA NO EXISTE EL LUGAR DONDE NACÍ)
Ignacio Agüero

Saturday 7 November, 6:30 p.m.

The Terrario's screenings are an audiovisual proposal that regularly presents videos, documentaries, and films related to the Intermediæ's programming. The next programme presents Aquí se construye (o ya no existe el lugar en donde nací). The documentary records the passing of time in a space that is transformed in keeping with changes imposed by the market. In the film, a resident of a neighbourhood in the municipality of Providencia, in Santiago de Chile, observes and suffers the consequences of the demolition of the adjoining house and the construction (over the course of two years) of a building in that spot. As an epilogue, this resident notices that the light that comes in through the windows of his home is no longer the same as it was, that almost all of his neighbours have left, and that even the bird colonies have emigrated. All he can do is look up at the new residents who lean out on the balconies of the new building.

Espacio, Tiempo y Emoción (Space, Time and Emotion) is the title of Javier Candeira’s second programme for Estación Futuro (Future Station).
