Synopsis for RETORNADOS
RETORNADOS is a short documentary about three families who have been forced to return to Honduras, and to the extremely violent conditions they fled. The film features the families’ narratives as chapters, with intimate impressions of their domestic lives and stories about their ambitions, fears, and desires for safety.

Synopsis for HACIA EL SOL
A 12 year old girl confronts her scarring past when she is placed at an immigrant children’s shelter for unaccompanied minors in Texas. As her future hangs in limbo, she embarks on a healing journey to recover her own sense of power through her artwork.

A special presentation of Cine Las Americas in partnership with Violet Crown Cinema.
