In Carpinteros, translated Woodpeckers, Julián finds love and purpose in the last place he imagined: Najayo prison in the Dominican Republic. Through sign languages from one prison to another, he encounters Yanelly, separated from 150 meters and dozens of guards, and has to win her love while keeping it a secret.
This screening will feature a special in-person appearance by lead actor Jean Jean.

El Mar La Mar (2017)
Thursday, Oct. 5, 7:30 p.m.
El Mar La Mar masterfully weaves together sublime 16 mm shots of nature and weather phenomena, animals, people and the tracks they leave behind with a polyphonic soundtrack, creating a cinematographic exploration of the desert habitat, a multi-faced panorama of a highly politicized stretch of land, a film poem that conjures up the ocean.
