Sun, Oct. 4 Varsity Theater 7:00 pm [maxbutton id="29"] West Coast Premiere Rate: 13 yrs. + Directed by Abner Benaim Documentary History, Politics Country: Panama, Argentina Year: 2014 Running Time: 93’ Spanish w/ English subtitles Invasión is a documentary about the collective memory of a country. The invasion of Panama by the U.S in 1989 serves as an excuse to explore how a people remember, transform, and often forget their past in order re-define their identity and become who they are today. Invasión documents the collective memory and willful amnesia of Panamanian filmmaker Abner Benaim's fellow countrymen, utilizing a combination of reenactments and interviews of the 1989 US Invasion. The people's lives were deeply shaken by the invasion: Defense forces who fought symbolic battles, politicians who justify their actions, friends of the church, from civilians to former General Noriega. Invasión is a platform to talk about the perils of sovereignty, democracy and endangered virtues of today's ultra-capitalist world. Invasión not only explores the mechanisms in which memory is turned into history, but holds a mirror to the present to show how our recent past shapes new Panama.
