Stories of Humanity

Humanity on the Move comes to the National Hispanic Cultural Center’s Bank of America Theatre (1701 Fourth Street NW) on Thursday, Oct. 4. This traveling film series tells the stories of those displaced by war, violence and natural disasters who are seeking refuge and a new place to call home. Following families and individuals on their journeys from Syria to Europe and Central America to the US border, Humanity on the Move shines a light on the global struggle for safety and equal rights for refugees, migrants and displaced people through their own powerful stories. Starting at 7pm two short documentaries will screen at NHCC. “Los Comandos” follows an at-risk 16-year-old in violence-riddled El Salvador who finds refuge with a group of volunteer paramedics. But when one of her fellow volunteers is gunned down, she must decide whether to leave or risk her life to help others. “Towards the North” introduces audiences to Nelly and her daughter Joseline who have fled extreme gang violence in Honduras to find refuge further north. Both films are shown in Spanish with English subtitles and are rated PG. This is a free ticketed event. Tickets are available for pickup at the Bank of America Theatre box office starting one hour before showtime.
