FREE EVENT! ALL WELCOME!

Join us at Chuco’s for a screening of films created by local youth as part Nepantla: Migration Narratives, a free workshop facilitated by Eliza Jimenez, Gemma Jimenez and Nicole Ucedo. Q&A with the filmmakers and a panel discussion will follow the films. Refreshments will be served!

Nepantla (Nahuatl word for being in-between): Migration Narratives was a free 4 week, 8 session film class for youth to explore migration narratives, especially focusing on migration to Los Angeles. We invited local youth to delve into and express these untold immigrant stories through film and video. We welcomed all directly impacted by immigration, whether undocumented or documented, queer and/or trans; we have all experienced Nepantla.

This project is made possible with support from California Humanities, a non-profit partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Visit calhum.org.
