7:00pm Puerto El Triunfo
Jeffrey Gould, El Salvador/USA/Canada (2017)
Featuring director Jeffrey Gould
In the 1970s, the 1500 organized workers of Puerto el Triunfo - mostly women - thanks to their struggles were amongst the more privileged laborers in the country. Then, state repression eliminated union leaders or drove them into exile. By 1990, the industry collapsed. The film provides a window into neoliberalism.

Featuring directors Pamela Yates and Paco de Onís
From a historic genocide trial and the organized defense of the land to the overthrow of a corrupt President, 500 Years tells a sweeping story of resistance in Guatemala’s recent history through the actions and perspectives of the majority indigenous Mayan population, who now stand poised to reimagine their society.
