Washburn University’s Mulvane Art Museum Sin Nombre film and guest speaker

11/10/17 05:11 pm CST
"Outsourcing Security, the Merida Initiative, Mexico and the Policing of Central America."

     Washburn University’s Mulvane Art Museum will host a film screening and discussion of the film Sin Nombre on Tuesday, November 14 at 6:00 pm in the upstairs gallery. The film, shown in conjunction with two of our exhibitions that focus on the Mexican American community and U.S. immigration detention facilities, is about Sayra (Paulina Gaitan), a Honduran teen who hungers for a better life. Her chance for one comes when she is reunited with her long-estranged father, who intends to emigrate to Mexico and then enter the United States. Sayra's life collides with a pair of Mexican gang members (Edgar Flores, Kristyan Ferrer) who have boarded the same American-bound train.

     Come to the Mulvane Art Museum on Thursday, November 16 at 6:00 pm for a conversation with Dr. Rafael Acosta Morales, Assistant Professor of Spanish in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at the University of Kansas, who will present “Outsourcing Security, the Merida Initiative, Mexico and the Policing of Central America.” Dr. Morales’ talk will be in the upstairs gallery as well.
