Part of the States of Danger and Deceit: European Political Thrillers in the 1970s Season
Written by Franco Solinas (The Battle of Algiers), State of Siege is perhaps the greatest political thriller of the 1970s. Costa-Gavras once again calls on Yves Montand to lead this story of an American, supposedly only working as an agricultural advisor regarding international development, who is kidnapped by guerrillas in Uruguay. The taut story is told against the backdrop of repressive politics, death squads and American involvement in Latin America.
The screening will be introduced by Dr Pasquale Iannone (The University of Edinburgh). This introduction will include British Sign Language interpretation.
