“The Migrants” in the best film in the world – El Diario

“Los emigrantes” was nominated for the 1971 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film and is part of the World's Best Picture series billboard, which will be shown on Saturday, February 24 at Cinemateca Boliviana, at 7 p.m.
The film had the rare honor of being nominated for four more Oscars, including Best Picture, after its US release in 1972.
“The Emigrants” is a solemn, romantic, illustrated historical account of the life of a small group of Swedish peasants and emphasizes the class system they maintain that enforces a strict social hierarchy.
The characters discover that the class system they fled is as entrenched in the United States as it was in Sweden.
Diego Gulco, the organizer of the film series, emphasizes that watching these films half a century after their release serves to remember that the United States (and many other countries) still faces continuing challenges regarding immigration. Its themes and approach are still as relevant today as they were in its premiere.
In the mid-nineteenth century, Christina and Karl Oscar live in a small rural village in Småland (southern Sweden). They get married and try to make a living with a small piece of land. However, the small size of their land, barren soil, and some poor crops make things very difficult. Even one of his sons is about to die. For all these reasons, they decided to immigrate to the United States, so they sold everything and traveled to America.
Guest of honor
On this occasion, the guest of honor to comment on the film is Jorge “Coco” Velasco, biologist, health doctor, sculptor, writer, and “frustrated” architect, who has more than 40 years in the field of public health, including health policy development, implementation and management. Health activities in the Americas, Africa and the Pacific.
Velasco holds a degree in biology and psychology from Southern Methodist University (Dallas, Texas), a master's degree in tropical medicine and parasitology from Louisiana State University School of Medicine (New Orleans) and a surgeon's degree from Universidad de San Andres Metropolis (La Paz, Bolivia).
But beyond academics and work, Coco Velasco has developed a very notable parallel career as a multi-artist.
