SF LATINO FILM FESTIVAL: VOICES BEYOND THE WALL: TWELVE LOVE POEMS FROM THE MURDER CAPITAL OF THE WORLD
September 24 only
Founded twenty-five years ago in San Pedro Sula, a Central American city infamous for its poverty and violence, Our Little Roses is the only girls’ orphanage in Honduras. Seventy girls, aged one to eighteen, have found refuge there from broken and destitute homes, murderous streets, and the neighboring Bordo, the worst slum in the Americas. Inside twenty-foot-high concrete walls topped with barbed wire, the girls receive medical attention, food, shelter, and the nurturing care of a vibrant and entirely female collective of other “desechables” (a slang word for orphans, also used for “disposable containers”). “Voices Beyond the Wall: Twelve Love Poems from the Murder Capital of the World” explores the question: how do those subjected to profoundest trauma and rejection begin to heal themselves and change the course of their lives?
Directed by Brad Coley. Documentary / Honduras, USA / 2017 / Documentary, Human Rights, Society / 88 mins / English, Spanish with English subtitles / Color
