DocuClub NY: Patrimonio

Mon, 10/02/2017 - 7:00pm
DCTV, 87 Lafayette St, NYC

Doors 6:30pm | No admittance after 7:30pm

co-presented with IDA

Please join us for our first DCTV Presents even this Fall – a work-in-progress screening co-presented with International Documentary Association of directors/producers Lisa F. Jackson and Sarah Teale's Patrimonio.

Patrimonio is a character-driven verite portrait of a community rallying to protect its natural resources – a story of inspired activism as an unlikely group of fishermen takes on a multi-national giant, challenging their own government, denouncing corruption and demanding justice.

The film takes place in Todos Santos on the Pacific Coast of Baja California Sur, Mexico. The film’s narrative arc tracks the town’s burgeoning awareness through the eyes of Chayo Salvatierra, whose family has fished these hard waters for four generations, and attorney John Moreno, a surfer and environmental activist who takes on a life-altering cause.

Following the screening, we will be joined by Producer/Director Sarah Teale and Editor Pilar Rico for a feedback discussion moderated by Sue Williams.

Doors open at 6:30pm. Space is limited. Admission not guaranteed, all RSVP's are first-come, first-served.
