For the month of April, 2018, the Hibbleton Gallery film series will explore the complex and politically-charged topic of immigration from Latin America to the United States. All screenings begin at 8pm and are free and open to the public. A discussion will follow each screening.
On April 28th we'll be showing "Sin Nombre" (2009) written and directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga. Seeking the promise of America, a beautiful young woman, Sayra (Paulina Gaitan), joins her father on an odyssey to cross the gauntlet of the Latin American countryside. Along the way, she crosses paths with a teenaged Mexican gang member, El Casper (Edgar M. Flores), who is maneuvering to outrun his violent past. Together they have to rely on faith, trust and street smarts if they are to survive their increasingly perilous journey towards the hope of new lives. Filmed in Spanish, the film’s title means “Nameless”. It won several awards, including the prizes for directing and cinematography at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival.
