Saturday, Special screening and talk: El Sol Sale Para Todos

Special screening & talk of the documentary El Sol Sale Para Todos. 
Admission is Free.  3PM, Saturday, December 1, 2012.  
The event take place at Juia de Burgos Bookstore at 2721 N. 5th Street.  
Laura Deutch, Carlos Pascual Sánchez and Leticia Roa Nixon will discuss the making of the film after the screening.

El Sol Sale Para Todos chronicles the rapid growth of the Mexican community in the historically immigrant neighborhood of South Philadelphia. Told through the first hand experiences of the main subjects who have been a formative part of this development over the last 20 years, a collective story of the community unfolds. However with growth and assimilation, come problems, resistance and efforts to organize. El Sole Sale Para Todos presents stories and fragments from the subjects’ memories, reflections and perspectives about the complexity of searching for a better life in a country that is not one’s own.
