State of Fear: The Truth about Terrorism

View the film then chat with filmmakers Pamela Yates and Paco de Onís about their documentary about the delicate balance between democracy and security. In Science Center, Craig Lecture Hall.

How can an open society balance demands for security with democracy? State of Fear dramatizes the costs a democracy faces when it embarks on a war against terror, potentially without end, all too easily exploited by unscrupulous leaders. Based on the ground-breaking revelations of the Peruvian Truth Reconciliation Commission, it serves as a cautionary tale for all nations. Followed by QA with the filmmakers, Pamela Yates and Paco de Ons of Skylight Pictures (www.skylight.is (www.skylight.is)). Second part of a two-part series on Memory, Truth, and Justice in Latin America; the first part is the screening of Granito: How to Nail a Dictator, transitional justice in Guatemala, Wednesday March 6, Hallock Auditorium, 7:30-9:30pm. Sponsored by the OCLC / Mellon Foundation, Peace Conflict Studies, Hispanic Studies/PRESHCO, Politics, Cinema Studies. Part of Oberlin's Second Annual Peace Week, March 3-8.
