Alborada Films & Movimientos present:

A day of documentaries and discussion on Latin America over 2 floors

We will be hosting a whole day of film screenings at Passing Clouds with our good friends from Alborada films. The venue has always been a hub for social awareness film screenings so we’re excited to present three films touching on subjects like food sovereignty in Venezuela, the reality of the Colombian countryside, and the 1973 military coup in Chile.
