Monica Film Center, Santa Monica

Maria, a 17-year-old Mayan girl, lives and works with her parents on a Guatemalan coffee plantation in the foothills of an active volcano. An arranged marriage awaits her: her parents have promised her to Ignacio, the plantation overseer. But Maria doesn’t sit back and accept her fate. Pepe, a young coffee cutter who plans to migrate to the U.S., becomes her possible way out. Maria seduces Pepe in order to run away with him, but after promises and clandestine meetings, Pepe abandons her, leaving her pregnant, alone and disgraced. There’s no time to lose for Maria’s mother, who thinks abortion is the only solution. But again things do not go as planned. Details and tickets

When Two Worlds Collide

September 16 thru 22

Monica Film Center, Santa Monica

Director, Heidi Brandenburg, will participate in a Q&A after the first evening screening on Friday, September 16

In this tense and immersive tour de force, WHEN TWO WORLDS COLLIDE brings audiences directly into the line of fire between two powerful, opposing Peruvian factions who will stop at nothing to keep their respective goals intact. On the one side is President Alan Garcia and the Peruvian government who, eager to enter the world stage, begins aggressively extracting oil, minerals, and gas from untouched indigenous Amazonian land. He is quickly met with fierce opposition from the indigenous people living in the Amazon jungle, led by Alberto Pizango, whose impassioned speeches against Garcia’s destructive actions become a rallying cry. When President Garcia continues to ignore their pleas, a tense war of words erupts into deadly violence, bloody protests and chaotic clashes between both sides. Details and tickets
