Info: This screening and conversation will continue from the opening discussion, unpacking excerpts of Lourdes Portillo’s extensive body of work. Excerpts viewed will touch on the intimate nature of documentary, auto-ethnography and home video aesthetics. Grappling with death and trauma these works engage histories of disappearances such as those of Mexican women along the U.S.-Tijuana border and the Plaza de Maya Mothers movement redressing those disappearances of Argentinian youth throughout the C.I.A. sponsored Operation Condor and Operation Central America.

About Overlook Field Trips:
Overlook Field Trips are a way to connect with a creative community and explore Chicago’s cultural happenings together. Ever wanted to go to a play or opening but couldn’t find someone to go with? Yea, so have we – so let’s go together! Each Field Trip will include an Overlook Chaperone to make sure the group feels supported and will offer to meet for coffee or a drink after the trip to talk about their trip, connect with one another, and inspire further conversation. Field Notes has generously donated notebooks for participants!
