El Boga Residency

The project "Mompox: Cinema, Memory and Place" seeks to recover the memory of the shooting of the film "Chronicle of a Death Foretold" (Francesco Rosi, 1987) in the city of Mompox. During her stay, Gracia will conduct oral history interviews and viewings of the film followed by conversations with the community of Mompox. These will form the basis of a paper that explores the relationship between present and past, reality and fiction with the film as a starting point.
