DROUGHT/ CUATES DE AUSTRALIA (Everado González, Mexico, 2012, 84 min. In Spanish with English subtitles)
Residents from the ejido (communal land) Los Cuates de Australia in Northeast Mexico perform every year a massive exodus to look for water during drought. In this exile, men, women, elders, and children wait for the first drops of water to return to their lands, metaphor of a small town that hides from death.

WE WOMEN WARRIORS/ TEJIENDO SABIDURÍA (Nicole Karsin, USA/ Colombia, 2012, 79 min. In Spanish with English subtitles)
We Women Warriors follows three native women caught in the crossfire of Colombia's warfare who use nonviolent resistance to defend their peoples' survival. Colombia has 102 aboriginal groups, one-third of which face extinction because of the conflict. Trapped in a protracted predicament financed by the drug trade, indigenous women are resourcefully leading and creating transformation imbued with hope. We Women Warriors bears witness to neglected human rights catastrophes and interweaves character-driven stories about female empowerment, unshakable courage, and faith in the endurance of indigenous culture. August 10 - 16.
