State (of) Terror

Set in areas that are under military occupation, dictatorship or civil war, the films presented as part of the State (of) Terror program question both the state monopoly on violence and the effects of militaristic/authoritarian policies, as well as the representation of their victims: caught between various hegemonic narratives, they can be guessed at beneath the veil of propaganda or the object of repressive methods, resisting stereotypes or empowered to portray themselves. All these politics have a sole logical conclusion: death. (Flavia Dima)
