Semana de Sueños – January 2019
SEMANA DE SUEÑOS brought together three stories of trouble and love in the Mexican/American borderland:  an attorney undertakes a surreal search for a lost child, separated from her father; a community of Chicano youth and their supporters call out unfair treatment by walking out of their San Antonio high school in 1968; and two border-city sisters sacrifice their hair for their pueblo in a new folktale.  SEMANA resonated deeply with its audiences.
