Event description

Description

Sin Nombre is the story of two inmigrantes who meet on the road to America. One is a young woman whose long-absent father returns to take her from her home in the Honduras to the U.S. and the other is a young man from Mexico who is attempting to escape from his life as a member of the notorious MS-13 gang. The two form an unlikely alliance in the face of threats from gang violence and law enforcement along their path. Loyalties are called into question and choices are made with sometimes deadly consequences. Rich in imagery, the story shows the personal sacrifices and conditions that people experience that put them on the path of immigration and what they must endure when seeking a better life.

There will be a panel discussion immediately following the movie discussing DACA and Immigration issues within our community.
