Spiritual Manifestations in Latin American Indigenous Horror Films

Presiding Officer: 
Mari-Eve Monette, McGill University

Because horror films combine realism and the phantasmagorical, Latin American indigenous cinematographers have increasingly embraced this genre to transmit oral myths and legends that reflect their belief in different spiritual dimensions and manifestations. This special session seeks to explore how the horror filmic genre empowers these indigenous oral traditions.
