Purgatorio - Free Screening @ DYD New York

PURGATORIO at Cinema Village New York

In this provocative documentary film, director and NALIP fellow Rodrigo Reyes re-imagines the Mexico/U.S. border as a mythical place comparable to Dante’s purgatory. Leaving politics aside, he takes a fresh look at the brutal beauty of the border and the people caught in its spell. Shot during a 4-week roadtrip in a dilapidated van with a crew of only three people, Reyes has captured a stunning mosaic of compelling characters and broken landscapes that live on the US-Mexico border, crafting a devastating reflection on the flaws of human nature and the powerful absurdities of the modern world.

Join us at the Cinema Village in New York, NY for a free screening of Purgatorio. Following the film, Rodrigo Reyes will discuss his work in a live Q&A.

This free screening is made possible by Matson FilmsNEA Media Arts and the University of Arizona Hanson Film Institute.
