Unforgettable premiere in Tijuana

2014-02-07 I 00:08

Here are some images of our Tijuana premiere. Cecut's theater was packed (over 200 people) and post-screening Q&A with the audience was amazing. Also, the panel discussion with Colef's scholars Aida Silva and Guillermo Alonso turned to be an extraordinary and revealing experience. But the best part came when we finally had the chance to share the film with some of the film's protagonists such as Edie and Carmela, who came to the screening with her siblings. They enjoyed the film and got a standing ovation from the public. It was a very emotional and intense night. We want to thank everyone who helped make this event happen and over all, we want to thank Edie, Carmela, and their families who opened their hearts and gave us their smiles once more.
