Welcome, bienvenidos to the Latino/Latina Film Series at Sierra College!

El Traspatio/Backyard (México, 2009)

  • Director: Carlos Carrera
  • Genre: Crime/Drama/Mystery
  • No Rating 5:00-7:00pm (2hr 2min)

An astonishing fictional account of the unending series of murders of young women in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, which began in 1996. Most of the victims are low-paid laborers who have been drawn to the town by the possibility of work at American-owned factories.

Since 2014, the annual Film Series introduces audiences to the power of film as both an art form and an opportunity to learn about the diversity of themes and genres within the *Latino community.
Whether it is focused in Realism, Classicism, or Formalism – from documentary to fiction to the avant-garde – films offer valuable points-of-view and, in the tech-driven 21st century, greater accessibility to those points-of-view. The Latino/Latina Film Series offers viewers an opportunity to understand, evaluate, and see their own story in the films of others.
Enjoy . . . disfruta!
