Screening |
A presentation of unpublished films by Jean Rouch and a discussion with Jean-Pierre Dozon, Valerie Berty, Jaime Berthe, and Catherine Ruelle. To mark the 100-year anniversary of the birth of anthropologist and filmmaker Jean Rouch, this is a selection of unfinished, unpublished films by the filmmaker, including “Monsieur Albert, Prophete” (Cote d’Ivoire, 1962-63) and “Moi fatigué, moi couché” (Niger, 1966-97). These will be presented and discussed by three specialists of Jean Rouch’s work. About half of his oeuvre remained unfinished and unpublished. Rouch was an adherent of improvisation, or “creative disorder” when filming and constructing his works in the editing process. Fluidity and indeterminacy are characteristic of his style, creating a dialogue and tension in his oeuvre between the finished and the unfinished.

Lecture |
Governments in the Global North have developed increasingly elaborate techniques to keep asylum seekers away from territories where they can ask for sanctuary. Many of these policies comply with the letter of domestic and international laws against returning people to face persecution while violating the spirit of those laws to avoid their perceived costs. A medieval landscape of domes, buffers, moats, cages, and barbicans prevents the unwanted from finding refuge. In this lecture, David FitzGerald uncovers how these policies are constrained by courts, transnational advocacy networks, and foreign policies that vary sharply by country. FitzGerald is the Theodore E. Gildred chair in U.S.-Mexican Relations, professor of sociology, and codirector of the Center for Comparative Immigration Studies at the University of California, San Diego.

Opening Reception |
Over the course of a century of rapid urban growth, sociopolitical upheavals and cultural transitions reshaped the architectural landscapes of major cities in Latin America. Focusing on six capitals—Buenos Aires, Havana, Lima, Mexico City, Rio de Janeiro, and Santiago de Chile—this show presents the colonial city as a terrain shaped by Iberian urban regulations, and the republican city as an arena of negotiation of previously imposed and newly imported models, which were later challenged by waves of indigenous revivals.
