Our first screening on Sept 2 @ HUB SoMa, presents the West Coast Premier of “Return from El Salvador” with guest speaker, director Jamie Moffett. Newly released, narrated by Martin Sheen and endorsed by Desmond Tutu, Return to El Salvador is a compelling story of vibrant Salvadorian individuals and communities among the intricate geo-political systems that have profoundly impacted their lives. Moffitt will be discussing various facets of the film including how and why it has been instrumental in introducing legislation for corporate accountability in Canada.
Themes include the countries 12 year-long civil war, immigration, environmental, social and economic justice, and corporate accountability; not so obvious is our growing responsibility in an interconnected world to re evaluate – just who is our neighbor? Only by listening to their story will we find out.
This film series is designed to not only illuminate issues and educational films, but the entrepreneurial artists that are standing in the gap with their talent, energy and vision. We are excited about potential to inspire and facilitate synergistic relationships interested in utilizing media to benefit the socially responsible / philanthropic space and plan to explore measurable impacts, evaluate various types of media rich campaigns, and organize dialog and media resources with the HUB and partner Bay Area arts, media and student groups throughout the year.
