  • The Caravan: Voices from the fishing villages of Peru


    The Caravan: Voices from the fishing villages of Peru

    Short Documentary Screening and Photography Exhibition

    Friday, May 27st | Reception at 6:00pm | Screening at 7:00pm
    Pre-sale $10, at the door $12
    Location: Theater and Lobby

    THE CARAVAN is an event featuring a collection of 5 short documentaries and photography about life along the coast of Northern Peru. From the memories and realities of the participants, we are shown how pollution, climate change, and community fortitude have become daily experiences in this shifting landscape.

    The film is segmented by chapters. "The Catch" embarks on one fisherman's day out at sea as he explains the practice of responsible fishing and laments the petroleum industry's affect on marine habitats and his family's subsistence. "Waste" characterizes the common experiences of villages without potable water sources or sewage systems, but few sit so closed to the iconic and ecologically diverse Seal Island. "Portraits from the Shore" are snapshots of women in the isolated village of La Islilla, who maintain the land and community while the men are absent at sea. "In Her Shoes" is the story of a woman who works from dawn 'til dusk, admiring the sea from afar since her profession had to be sacrificed in order to support her children. "From the Ground up" takes place in a shipyard where the tradition of constructing wooden vessels is still practiced by proud artisans.

    Join us in experiencing our world and the problems facing the environment through another set of eyes.

Over three decades of artistic career he has become one of the most famous comedians in Cuba, has made a long career as a “troubadour” dealing with topics raging from the chile habanero to the rise of Donald Trump in a reflexive way.

    “Cuba sí, Yanquis ¿qué?” gives reference to the importance of speaking up about the future of Cuba now that “for the first time in 50 odd years enmity disappears in one fell swoop,” Virulo says. Join us for an intimate night that promises a good laugh, revolt, and inspiration by none other than Virulo!
