Eduardo Guillot. Peru. 2018. 98 min.
*At 6:30pm, Duke professor Orin Starn and UNC-CH professor Miguel La Serna will discuss their most recent book, The Shining Path: Love, madness and revolution in the Andes (2019). Following the film there will be discussion with Peruvian film scholar Pablo Celis-Castillo from Elon University.*
Vladimiro Montesinos, head of Peru’s secret police and former president Alberto Fujimori’s closest adviser, spun a tight web of illegal activities. That web began to untangle when a video showing Montesinos attempting to bribe a congressman became public. Based on lead prosecutor José Ugaz’s memoir, Eduardo Guillot’s fast-paced thriller depicts his investigation as a cat and mouse game between a wily political operative and a straight arrow determined to bring him down no matter the consequences.
*Parking available in parking garage for $1 for the evening.*
