Defying Empire commemorates the 50th anniversary of 1967 Referendum

“Prometeo Deportado (Deporting Prometeo)”

By anclas - 31 August 2011 1

The Australian National Centre for Latin American Studies and the Embassy of the Republic of Ecuador presents the screening of:

“Prometeo Deportado (Deporting Prometeo)”
Thursday 29th September, 6.30pm
Manning Clark Theatre 3
The Australian National University

In a European airport, members of the EU pass through immigration freely, while the “others” wait in line. A group of Ecuadorians are specifically targeted, arrested and put into a holding cell before being deported. All of them have something to hide, including Prometeo, a young Ecuadorian with some special luggage. As time passes in the waiting room, more and more Ecuadorians arrive, and conditions soon deteriorate to inhumane levels. With no exit, a new order and illusion are created, thanks in part to Prometeo.

 The showing of the film (112 minutes) will be followed by light food and beverages.

 Admission is free. No RSVP required.

 Location:
Manning Clark Centre is opposite Union Court in the centre of the ANU campus, and can be reached by foot from various parking facilities and Canberra city centre.

Couldn’t be more timely, given today’s High Court rejection of Australia’s heartless attempts to ship refugees overseas.

Is the film presented with sub-titles?
