DocuClub NY: PATRIMONIO
Please join us Monday, October 2, for last DocuClub NY of 2017! We'll be screening directors/producers Lisa F. Jackson and Sarah Teale'sPatrimonio. Following the screening, we will be joined by Sarah Teale (Producer/Director) and Pilar Rico (Editor) for a moderated discussion moderated by Sue Williams.
PATRIMONIO is a character driven verite portrait of a community rallying to protect its natural resources, a story of inspired activism as an unlikely group of fishermen takes on a multi-national giant, challenging their own government, denouncing corruption and demanding justice.
The film takes place in Todos Santos, a community of 6,000 on the Pacific Coast of Baja California Sur, Mexico. The film’s narrative arc tracks the town’s burgeoning awareness through the eyes of Chayo Salvatierra, whose family has fished these hard waters for four generations, and attorney John Moreno, a surfer and environmental activist who takes on a life-altering cause.
DocuClub NY is a regular collaboration between IDA and DCTV. This work-in-progress screening series offers the public and members of the film community advance access to new documentaries in progress, and the opportunity to participate in behind-the-scenes conversations with filmmakers and creators.
Doors open at 6:30pm. Screening followed by a moderated feedback discussion with the filmmakers - 7:00pm - 9:30pm. Admission not guaranteed, all RSVP's are first-come, first-served.
