11/18 -- "Volver la Vista" at Instituto Cervantes

Posted By on 11.17.08 at 06:47 PM

Mexican expats in Austria and Austrian expats in Mexico (many escapees of Nazi persecution) discuss their adopted homes and reminisce about the ones they left behind in Fridolin Schönwiese's 2005 documentary Volver la Vista—Der umgekehrte Blick (The Gaze Back). The film screens free Tuesday at 6 PM at Instituto Cervantes (31 W. Ohio). A tiny but utterly charming trailer (" 'Oh, no, you can't be a Jewess. You talk like us. . . and besides you didn't kill Jesus!' ") can be viewed here
