Next Up in SF’s International Film Festival: Sin Nombre, Oct. 10 in E Auditorium

The third film in the 2012 Santa Fe College International Film Festival won two awards at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival. Sin nombre  is a Mexican film which tells the story of Honduran teenager Sayra reuniting with her father and seizing an opportunity for her to potentially realize her dream of a life in the United States.  Moving to Mexico is the first step in a fateful journey of unexpected events.

Sin nombre will be shown on Wednesday, Oct. 10, at 2 p.m. in E Auditorium.  This is the only screening to be held during the day, so we are hoping for a big turnout.  Dr. Bill Little, Chair of the Department of Humanities and Foreign Languages, will be providing an introduction to the film.

This screening is free and open to the public.  Additional information on all the films being shown during the 2012 Santa Fe College International Film Festival may be found at http://www.sfcollege.edu/student/filmfestival/.
