Women's Film Series: What We Leave Behind

Women's Film Series: What We Leave Behind


Oct 14, 2023 | 7pm

No tickets are required to attend this event. 

Join us for an exploration of the life of Julian Moreno, an 89-year-old who’s made a 17-hour bus ride every month from Primo de Verdad, Mexico, to visit family in El Paso, Texas. After his last visit to Texas, he returned to rural Mexico and began building a new house in the empty lot next to his home. Julian’s granddaughter filmed his work over several years, creating both a love letter to her grandfather, as well as an intimate and insightful exploration of her own relationship with him and his homeland.

A Q&A with the film’s director, Iliana Sosa, will follow the screening. The award-winning director was born and raised in El Paso, Texas, and currently resides in Austin. She received her MFA in Directing from UCLA.

This event is held in conjunction with the BDC's 9th Annual Women's Film Series which runs from October 13-15, 2023, learn more here. The Film Series was curated by Beth Dembitzer and Tânia Cypriano.

This event is free, but donations are always greatly appreciated.
