Alias La Gringa Synopsis
The film “Alias La Gringa” simply said was the third most successful film screened in Peru in 1991. It is a daring story that combines a prison drama which shows the structural violence and claustrophobia of Peruvian institutions, with the spectacular elements of the action-adventure genre such as escape attempts, bomb attacks, basketball matches and fights that contribute towards the development of tension and anticipation. This action packed film suffered many hard ships during its production that could of easily stop it right in its tracks. A few shining example of this are the lack of funds the film had at it’s disposal and state support for national cinema. After along five year, Alberto Durant finally produced the film that the people where wanting. It stayed in theaters for a month in Peru, which is much longer than that of other films. At first Durant’s drama seems like a typical third person narrative, but one cant help to notice how it adopts the literal and ethical point of view of the protagonist, known as La Gringa. In the first scene of the film one is immediate overwhelmed with a compassionate feeling for La Gringa as he escapes a prison to be reunited with his devoted girl friend Julia. Unfortunately, to both their surprise, La Gringa is captured again, after being betrayed by a prisoner he left behind called Loca Luna. As a result from this treachery Loca Luna becomes La Gringa’s mortal enemy. After this point, most of the film takes place on the rocky island prison of El Frontón, where common criminals are kept apart from the political terrorists. This where La Gringa meets Professor Oscar Montes who has been charged with terrorism offences but insists that he is innocent. Also in this part of the film we see tension start to rise up from prison Warden, who is fearful that if La Gringa escapes again, it will spell the end of his career as a result he plots with Loco Luna to have La Gringa murdered. The audience see’s...

From Arthur Miller, America’s most celebrated playwright, a searing portrait of a community engulfed by hysteria, inspired by Senator Joseph McCarthy’s anti-communist “witch-hunts” in the 1950s
“I believe that the reader will discover here the essential nature of one of the strangest and most awful chapters in human history,” Arthur Miller wrote in an introduction to The Crucible, his classic play about the witch-hunts and trials in seventeenth-century Salem, Massachusetts. In the rigid theocracy of Salem, rumours that women are practicing witchcraft galvanize the town’s most basic fears and suspicions; and when a young girl accuses Elizabeth Proctor of being a witch, self-righteous church leaders and townspeople insist that Elizabeth be brought to trial. The ruthlessness of the prosecutors and the eagerness of neighbour to testify against neighbour brilliantly illuminate the destructive power of socially sanctioned violence.
Written in 1953, just after Miller received a Pulitzer Prize for Death of a Salesman, The Crucible mirrors the anti-communist hysteria inspired by Senator Joseph McCarthy’s “witch-hunts” in the United States. Within the text itself, Miller contemplates the parallels, writing “Political opposition...is given an inhumane overlay, which then justifies the abrogation of all normally applied customs of civilized behaviour. A political policy is equated with moral right, and opposition to it with diabolical...
