New York Times Op-Docs by Mexican Filmmakers at El Museo
March 5 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$$
We are excited to partner with the New York Times to host a screening of six short films with outsize impact — all in Spanish (with English subtitles), by Mexican filmmakers, and part of The Times’s Op-Docs series of documentaries. The program, moderated by Times reporter Eduardo Porter, includes a discussion with the films’ creators, who are flying in from Mexico for this event.
The films to be screened: “Ciudad herida”/“Ruptured City” by Santiago Arau Pontones and Diego Rabasa, chronicling the 2017 central Mexico earthquake; “Niños en la narcozona”/“Children of the Narco Zone” by Everardo González, following a school teacher and a former gang member; “Un prisionero en la familia”/“A Prisoner in the Family” by Indra Villaseñor Amador, about a woman desperate enough to lock up her own child; “El buzo”/“The Diver” by Esteban Arrangoiz, portraying Mexico’s happiest sewer denizen; “La palabra justa”/“Justice in Translation” by Sergio Blanco, on the language gap in the Mexican justice system for indigenous people accused of a crime; and “Unsilenced” by Betzabé García, on an activist murdered on-air while hosting his radio show.
