The Other Side of Immigration

By David Johanssen

A caravan of more than a thousand immigrants from Central America has traveled through Mexico to the U.S. border, setting off a Trump tweet storm. Many of them, primarily from Honduras, are planning to enter the U.S. illegally and either claim asylum or attempt to cross the border undetected. The caravan was organized by a group called “Pueblo Sin Fronteras,” Spanish for “People without Borders.” Why do so many Central Americans risk their lives to come to the U.S.? What happens to the families and communities they leave behind and on the road to a better life? Would a change in immigrant policy open the floodgates or satisfy demand for low-skilled labor while bringing hardworking people out of the shadows to give them basic human rights? You’ll want to have these questions answered!

Next Friday, May 25th at 5 pm Shelter presents the Sundance film festival award winner for both cinematography and directing: Sin Nombre (The Nameless), the adventure of a young Honduran woman, hungering for a brighter future, as she crosses Mexico to the Unites States. According to The Washington Post, “Sin Nombre is pure filmmaking: a great story told in beautiful images.” After the film we will discuss the current immigration debate and the courageous immigrants who make the dangerous trip north.

Los Olvidados on Friday, May 18th at 5 pm: The classic 1952 film that reinvigorated director Luis Buñuel’s career. A group of juvenile delinquents live a violent and crime-filled life in the festering slums of Mexico City. According to The New Yorker Magazine, “It’s a masterpiece that tangles individual and social ills into a knot, which, as we’re warned in an opening voiceover, it offers no easy way to untie, rousing a sickening sense of injustice.”

For the entire month of May, all events at Shelter Theater will be ‘Pay-What-You-Can’ where you contribute whatever contribution you’d like to make to theater in San Miguel. Come and enjoy classic films, documentaries and concerts on screen at Shelter Theater for however much you choose to give to support the visual arts in our arts pueblo. Any contribution will, of course, also be used to help support our community events, bringing free family films and shows to our working-class neighborhood.

Shelter Theater is an easy 10-minute walk down from the Jardin! See our calendar at www.sheltervg4.com for dates and online tickets. Find our logo on the Que Pasa map in the upper left-hand corner.
