FREE FILM SCREENING AND DISCUSSION WITH THE DIRECTOR
7PM October 26, 2011, Creighton University
Creighton’s Cortina Community will be hosting an open screening of the documentary Return to El Salvador on October 26th. After the screening, the film’s director, Jamie Moffet, will be present for a conversation with the audience.
“Return to El Salvador brings the struggles of El Salvador back into view and examines what drives over 700 Salvadorans to flee their homeland each day, often risking their lives to illegally enter countries in search of a better life for their families….This film explores the hopes of the Salvadoran people and walks with them in their journey. Return to El Salvador represents the power and audacity of solidarity and challenges North Americans to question the global impact of their government on struggling nations.”1 The film is narrated by Emmy Award winner Martin Sheen and endorsed by Nobel Peace Prize winner Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
Director Jamie Moffet “is an American independent motion picture director and producer.
