Los Angeles Filmforum and UCLA Film & Television Archive present “Ism, Ism, Ism: Experimental Cinema in Latin America”

Luis Ospina: A Rational Act of Faith

Colombian rabble-rouser Luis Ospina returns to his alma mater, UCLA, to screen a collection of his rarely seen early short films. His trademark style — already present in his early works — crosses boundaries between documentary and fiction, parody and melodrama, the archive and historical invention. We will screen his recently restored thesis film Acto de Fe (Act of Faith, 1972), a dark short-film adaptation of Jean-Paul Sartre’s short story Erostratus, shot in Los Angeles, as well as Autoretrato (Dormido) (1971), El bombardeo de Washington (Air Strike on Washington, 1972), Oiga vea (co-directed with Carlos Mayolo, 1972), En busca de ‘María’ (co-directed with Jorge Nieto, 1985) and VIDEO (B)ART(H)ES (Luis Ospina, 2003), among others.

Digital, color & b/w, total running time: approx. 75 min.

In Person: Luis Ospina, filmmaker

FREE admission for all UCLA students with valid I.D.
