Today is a big day for many of the people who live in Central and North America, el Día de la Independencia is celebrated today in El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua … and Mexico celebrates their Día de la Independencia tomorrow.
I’d like to make you aware of one cultural event that is happening this weekend. The Salt Lake City Library, in partnership with Centro Civico Mexicano (www.centrocivicomexicano.org), is doing a film screening of “Memorias de un Mexicano.” This is a film documentary of the[masked] Mexican Revolution, and it has incredible footage of life in Mexico during the early part of the 20th century. I believe the film will be shown in Spanish, and I don’t know whether it will be subtitled in English. The film will be shown Friday, September 16, at 7 p.m. and Saturday, September 17, at 10 a.m. in the Main Auditorium of the library. You can learn more about it at http://slcpl.org/events/view/631/, and I also found a cool 3-minute summary of it on YouTube at http://youtu.be/brtbXXxCAY0.
May we all celebrate all people everywhere.
