We are proud to showcase two compelling films that shed light on important narratives concerning culture, heritage, and nature: "Al Aire Libre" and "Carlisle 200".
Following each film, we will ask you to engage in a reflective and insightful Q&A session with the filmmakers of each film, offering an opportunity for the audience to delve deeper into the narratives presented.
Celebrate the richness of Hispanic heritage and acknowledge the significance of Truth and Reconciliation Day by fostering understanding and empathy through powerful storytelling.

Carlisle 200 (watch trailer here)
Carlisle 200 follows Native bikers Guarina Lopez (Pascua Yaqui) and Tsinnijinnie Russell (Diné) on a 200-mile prayer ride from Washington, D.C. to the cemetery at Carlisle Indian Boarding School in Carlisle, PA. Through rain and shine on the long gravel trail, Guarina, Tsinnijinnie, and fellow activist-bikers honor the 190+ children buried at Carlisle and raise awareness of the history and ongoing impact of the residential boarding school system on Indigenous communities.
