Cine Europeo y Hospitalidad: Empatía, Hospitalidad, Esperanza

Project member Mónica Fernandez hosts a Hostfilm Seminar under the title “Empatía, Hospitalidad, Esperanza” (“Empathy, Hospitality, Hope”). Project members Jorge Diego (USAL), Patricia San José (UVA) and Paula Barba (USAL) will lead some of the sessions, together with guests speakers from Universidad Complutense (Madrid) and Universidad de Oviedo. The seminar aims to bring together graduate and undergraduate students to explore and discuss issues such as the capacity of cinema to create empathic responses, to represent patterns of hostility/hospitality in the national/personal reception of strangers, as well a to explore the representations of migrants as parasitic invaders, or even as zombies.
