Excited to announce we have a very special film and filmmaker coming to Redwood City on Monday night December 17th, 7pm. Because the film is not out yet, we cannot publicize the name of the film but we can tell you it is a beauiful drama that was written and directed here in the Bay Area. The story is part coming of age film part road trip--an immigration story in which the San Francisco Chronicle said "the acting, cinematography and music all lend the film a gritty and emotional authenticity.”
We only have 176 tickets available and we will be selling them on eventbrite---They are available NOW.
We are allowed to release the name of the film and all other info by email through our BRAVE MAKER BUZZ email list. You can sign up for this on--www.bravemaker.com. (You will be emailed the info within a day or less).
REGULAR SEATS=$10 (will be first come first served in the theater).
VIP SEATS=$15 and are the prime coveted seats in the middle of the theatre (and there will be 50 reserved).
We have 20 PAY WHAT YOU CAN TICKETS for whatever donation you can offer.

The filmmaker, who is from San Francisco, will be in attendance. He recently one a big award at a big festival.
This film (a narrative not a documenatary) is still making rounds on the film festival circuit and tells the story of a single mother who's children are left behind when she is arrested and deported. It's a perfect story raising our awareness of the challenges in our country's immigration systems. (MPAA has not rated this film yet, but it probably is PG-13. It features a middle school girl and her elementary aged brother and is appropriate for 13 and up.
More info will be released as we have it.
Can't wait to share this film with you.
Please bring a friend with you. Buy a ticket for a neighbor. This film will open your eyes and create empathy for an overlooked community of people right in our own Bay Area.

“Film in particular has the unique capability to put the audience inside the lives and experiences of others,” says the director. “I’m trying to present a realistic portrait for what it’s like for one family to go through separation because of immigration enforcement, so that the audience gets a chance to experience that for themselves, rather than just reading headlines or looking at statistics.”
