Invisible (2023): Film Screening and Panel Discussion

When: Thursday, May 30, 2024, 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM
Where: BLOC Cinema, ArtsOne Building, Queen Mary University of London, Mile End Road, London, E1 4NS

AHRC-funded research project Affective and Immaterial Labour in Latin(x) American Culture,  led by Dr Rachel Randall (School of Languages, Linguistics and Film), event

The short documentary 'Invisible' explores the daily challenges faced by domestic workers in Colombia who commute on public transport. Domestic workers' journeys are invariably long, expensive, overcrowded and often dangerous, yet they must endure them twice a day to maintain their frequently undervalued jobs and to support their own families.   

The 30-minute screening will be followed by a panel discussion and audience Q&A. We are delighted that one of the film’s directors, Dr Valentina Montoya Robledo, will be joining the attendees for the discussion. For more details about this free event, and to register, please go to the Eventbrite page.  

This event is being organised as part of the AHRC-funded project 'Affective and Immaterial Labour in Latin(x) American Culture'. For more information, see the blog site, which includes a co-authored blog post about the making of 'Invisible' and about the Invisible Commutes project
