Join us for a screening and Q&A discussion of the short film

Epifanio has lived crossing national, linguistic, cultural, class, race, ethnicity, and belonging borders since he was born. When he was eight years old, he crossed the Altar desert to join his father in the United States—What happened there changed his life forever.

With this autobiographical documentary, Epifanio embarks on a journey through memory to narrate what it means to be a child, indigenous and migrant, inside and outside his own country.
