Please join us at the film screening of …and the earth did not swallow him, by award-winning filmmaker, Paul Espinosa, whose personal archive was recently acquired by the UC San Diego Library, on Tuesday, November 10, 2015 from 7 – 9 PM at the Museum of Photographic Arts (MOPA) in Balboa Park. This event is free and open to the public. Please click here to RSVP.

The award-winning independent filmmaker is renowned for his documentary and dramatic films focused on the U.S.-Mexico border region, immigration, and cross-cultural issues. His films include The Lemon Grove Incident, The U.S.-Mexico War, and Uneasy Neighbors. Paul Espinosa will attend and participate in a Q&A after the film screening.

Film Synopsis: A moving and powerful portrait of the life of a poor Mexican American boy and his migrant farm worker family as they struggle to adjust to life in American society. Told through the eyes of Marcos, a twelve-year-old boy, the film emphasizes Marcos’ desire to educate himself. Through its many human stories of growing up as a Mexican American, the story exposes the rich cultural traditions which have given shape to life in the American Southwest.
