El Norte

When a group of Mayan Indians decides to organize a labor union to improve conditions in their village, their community is violently destroyed by the Guatemalan army. Teenage siblings, Rosa (Zaide Silvia Gutiérrez) and Enrique (David Villalpando) manage to escape the massacre and decide to start a new life in El Norte—the USA. The two trek through Mexico, meeting a variety of characters and facing trials and tribulations on their journey toward lives as illegal immigrants in Los Angeles.


This spring, the Adelphi University Department of History will host a series of film screenings exploring the history of immigration, migration and race.  At the conclusion of each screening, a member of the Adelphi faculty will lead a discussion about the film with the audience.  All screenings will take place in the Concert Hall and are free and open to the public.
