OPENING NIGHT | Thursday, May 27 @ 7:30 pm
Award winning film Norteado / Northless
Dir. Rigoberto Perezcano (Mexico 2009, 95min, 35mm)
After the screening, Director Rigoberto Perezcano and Producer Edgar San Juan will hold a Q & A session.
Andres travels from Oaxaca to Tijuana to cross the US border. Things don’t result as planned and he has to stay in Tijuana where he starts working in a grocery store. There, he meets Elia, Cata and Asensio. What Andres finds in Tijuana makes him think about what he’s about to do and become aware of what he’s leaving behind. Norteado talks about the illusion that the United States represents for those who decide to cross the border searching for a better life.
