The Plight of the Honduran Immigrant

Hounduran Immigrant

By David Johanssen

In recent years there has been a surge of unaccompanied children from Central America crossing through Mexico and seeking entrance into the United States. More than 10,000 immigrants have died crossing the southern US border since 1998. Oftentimes no one knows who these people might have been when they were alive, where they came from, what their aspirations were, and why they would risk riding trains across Mexico and crossing the Sonoran Desert.

Join us for a discussion on this compelling topic Tuesday, April 14, at 4pm as Shelter Theater continues its documentary series with Who is Dayani Cristal? This is a very moving documentary about the Central American immigrants who risk everything for a dream. The body of an unidentified immigrant is found in the Arizona desert; in an attempt to retrace his path, director Marc Silver and Gael Garcia Bernal embed themselves among migrant travelers. 50 pesos.

Friday, April 10, at 7pm join us for “Champagne Cinema” and Henry Fonda’s classic one man show from 1974: Clarence Darrow. “Just plain wonderful. I urge every man woman and child interested in justice and America to see it.” Clive Barnes, New York Times. 100 pesos, includes a glass of bubbly.

Wednesday, April 15, at 7pm join us for a live concert with Luis Gasca: Jazzsoneando. The living legend with the shining trumpet is back in SMA. The Miles Davis-inspired musician played Woodstock with Janis Joplin, pioneered Chicano rock with Beto Villa and Little Joe Hernández, befriended César Chavez, and stretched the boundaries of Latin jazz with the albums Little Giant Collage and For Those Who Chant. This time Gasca, accompanied by well-known local musicians Kimani Carrazana on percussion, Yamil Vásquez on piano, and Aaron Romo on bass, will present a repertoire featuring the rhythms of the musical style known as Jazzsoneando in a concert combining Afro-Caribbean mestizo sounds with jazz compositions. 150 pesos.

Thursday, April 16, at 4 pm join us for a documentary and discussion: The War on Whistleblowers. In the face of life threatening dangers, they dare to speak truth. They’re the crusaders for truth who often stand as the lone link between corrupted corporate and governmental interests and the public’s right to know. 50 pesos.

Shelter Theater is part of the Shelter VG4 Cultural Center, located at Vicente Guerrero 4, a 10-minute walk from the Jardín. Telephone 154 7524 or visit to see upcoming films and events. Taxi concierge service available to/from Teatro Shelter.
