Join Spanish for Activists Latin Film Night! This month we will be showing the documentary on Columbia's gangs entitled "La Sierra". (2005) NR

Colombia-based journalists Scott Dalton and Margarita Martinez introduce us to a nation at civil war by hitting the streets of Medellín, a dangerous city ruled by a fierce paramilitary gang. By focusing on three vastly different personalities -- Edison, a gang leader; Cielo, a widowed teenage mother; and Jesus, a drug-using thug -- the filmmakers draw us into their world and capture startling moments of truth and sorrow.

"AN UNFORGETTABLE FILM!"
—Miami Herald—

"REMARKABLE... A STARK, RELENTLESSLY DEGLAMORIZED VISION OF THUG LIFE...
ESSENTIAL VIEWING."
—The Village Voice—

Join us for Colombian food, music and presentation by Michelle Cordova.
