We are delighted to invite you to a free screening of Invasión (1969), a little-known Latin American Science Fiction classic and one of the two feature films made with a script by Jorge Luis Borges.

Where?: UCL – Galton Lecture Theatre, 1-19 Torrington Place, London WC1

When?: 4pm. Monday 30 November.

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion chaired by Professor Jason Wilson and including the prominent film critic Gonzalo Aguilar and the director Alejo Moguillansky, who produced the DVD extras of Invasión.

Synopsis of the film: “Invasión is the story of a city, imaginary or real, which is besieged by powerful enemies and defended by a handful of men, who may not be heroes. They are ready to fight to the end without suspecting that their battle could be endless.” (Jorge Luis Borges).
