El Norte

35th Anniversary Screening
(2018/2019 Films)

Tue, Apr 30
7:30 PM Pacific
FREE event; no advance tickets required

A work of social realism imbued with dreamlike imagery, El Norte is a lovingly-rendered story of hope and survival, which critic Roger Ebert called "a Grapes of Wrath for our time." The film tells the timely story of Enrique and Rosa, siblings who flee persecution in Guatemala and journey north through Mexico and on to the United States with the dream of starting a new life. With immigration as one of the most pressing and polarizing issues on the national agenda, it has a renewed potency as it portrays the harrowing odyssey to the U.S. and the struggles of adapting to a new life in Los Angeles. This 35th-anniversary screening pays homage to the movie's masterful quality and enduring influence. (Gregory Nava, 1983, 139 min.)
