Join the Southwest Center and the Bear Canyon Center for Southwest Humanities for the screening of Sonora.

The movie is based on a book written by Guillermo Munro, who will be present for a post-screening Q&A along with cast members.

The script was written by acclaimed writer John Sayles. Mexico, 1931, a year of nationalisms and excesses: The Chinese are expelled from Sonora; the US deports Mexicans and closes its borders. Twelve desperate people cross the Sonoran desert in a 1929 Chrysler, hoping to find peace in Baja California. As their sojourn exposes both the best and the worst of human nature, racism, greed, and paranoia prove as deadly as the merciless landscape around them.

In Spanish with English subtitles.
