Sleep Dealer
Directed by Alex Rivera, 90 mins
Memo Cruz is a young man in near-future Mexico. When his family is victim of a misguided drone attack, he finds himself with no option but to head north, towards the U.S./Mexico border. Memo’s search for a better future leads him to love, loss, and a confrontation with a
mysterious figure from his past.

Preceded by:
The Satellite Space Center of Colombia (Centro especial satelital de Colombia)
Directed by La Decanatura (Calderón & Piñeros), 10 min
A school orchestra is taken by surprise when they stumble upon a telecommunication antenna that was abandoned in the Colombian tropics—a symbol of failed progress. Now, it has become an archaeological relic of the future.

Blankets, lawn chairs, snacks, picnics, and pets are welcome. Free parking on site.
