EUROSUD Film Night

EUROSUD hold a regular film night for students and staff focusing on movies about Southern Europe or filmed in Southern Europe. Theย  group are asked to come up with suggestions for viewing. After the viewing there is a discussion about the film. This is a great regular social event for the all!

The recent screening watched was Letters from War (Portuguese: Cartas da Guerra) which is based around a collection of letters written by a young soldier, doctor and an aspirant writer, to his wife while he was serving in Angola between 1971 and 1973, during the Portuguese Colonial War. Following the movie, we talked about the War itself and then also what patterns arise in the movie that we can identify in other conflicts as well.

The first screening was Soldiers of Salamina (David Trueba, 2003)

https://www.europeanfilmawards.eu/en_EN/film/soldiers-of-salamina.5846

The movie is inspired by a best-seller novel under the same name written by Javier Cercas. In it โ€œThe narrator is fascinated by the way memory congeals into history: the insidious process by which personal narratives become part of a past that can no longer be verified, and is therefore taken to be the truth, even though it is only one possible version of what actually happened. As Cercas points out, the events of the Spanish civil war, which took place only a generation earlier, are becoming as distant and fixed as the story of the soldiers who fought the Persian fleet at Salamis more than 2,000 years earlier.

Here you can find an interview with the author of the novel, Javier Cercas:

Meet Giulia Bottoloni - EUROSUD Int Master Student - Internship

Hello Giulia here! I'm a student of the EUROSUD Masters programme. I chose EUROSUD because I wanted to broaden my knowledge of the Euro-Mediterranean region and its contemporary challenges. This Master also allowed me to explore the topics I am most interested in, namely migration and gender equality from an intercultural perspective. My pathway allowed me to study at the University of Glasgow, the University of Athens and Aix-Marseille. This challenging and enriching programme helped me build an international and multidisciplinary background that led me to the internship I am doing now.

I am doing an internship at Fundaciรณn Cruz Blanca, a Spanish NGO specialized in human rights protection and integration of populations at risk of being marginalized. Since February, I have been supporting the implementation of an EU project aimed at improving the detection and identification of minors and young adult victims of human trafficking, together with other 3 partner organizations in Italy, France and Belgium. I would like to continue to work in this environment and I am glad to have chosen this academic pathway that allowed me to explore it.
