Film: El Norte

May 26 @ 7:30 pm

This academy-award winning film is the story of two indigenous siblings who flee Guatemala due to the ethnic and political persecution of the Guatemalan Civil War. After their parents are murdered, they make a very difficult journey through Mexico into the U.S. where they face the problems of being undocumented immigrants. For more detail, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/El_Norte_(film). The themes in the film and the issues raised are as relevant today as they were when the film was made in 1983.
