Community Screenings Project: Teatro Linea de Sombra | Amarillo
Between April and June 2013, OntheBoards.tv and Boom Arts (Portland) will expand the Pacific Northwest audience for Amarillo (film coming soon to OntheBoards.tv) by screening the filmed piece in five regional communities. Each screening will be hosted by and co-curated with a local arts partner and will include a bilingual discussion and Q&A featuring local scholars and community leaders. The piece expands our collective conversation about immigration and border issues with a poetic Mexican perspective. Teatro Línea de Sombra's Amarillo uses contemporary visual and multimedia theatre to evoke the hope and despair experienced by Mexican and Central American migrants attempting to cross the US/Mexico border.
