Silvia Malagrino’s Burnt Oranges is released on DVD


Burnt Oranges

My professor from graduate school, Silvia Malagrino will be celebrating the DVD release of her film Burnt Oranges with a screening at Millenium Film Workshop: 66 E 4th St New York City on Saturday, October 17, 2009 at 7:30pm.

Burnt Oranges (2005) is an award-winning poetic documentary, the first of its kind in the U.S. – created by a woman in exile from her native country, Argentina. Director Silvia Malagrino examines the long-term effects and repercussions of Argentina’s 1970s state terrorism through a combination of intimate witness narration, interviews, documentary, and re-created footage. The film is a personal and artistic portrayal of a country’s struggles to confront its painful past, and a reminder of the global necessity to defend human rights and democratic values.

Listen to the May 4, 2005 Eight Forty-Eight interview with Malagrino about her film.
