El Norte Film Screening with Zaide Silvia Gutierrez
Friday, March 22, 2013 at 6:00 PM (PDT)
Fri Mar 22 @ 6pm
Filmed in 1983, and nominated for an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay, El Norte (directed by Gregory Nava) remains a powerful and unforgettable epic film which Roger Ebert has called The Grapes of Wrath for our time. The film tells the story of a Guatemalan brother and sister, and their harrowing, sometimes humorous, and always poignant story as they make their way through Mexico and to the U.S. in search of what they hope will be a better life.
2013 marks the 30th Anniversary of this seminal film, and our anniversary screening will include a question and answer session with the film’s female lead (Rosa), played by renowned Mexican actor Zaide Silvia Gutiérrez.
