About the Event
As Cara Romero confronts her darkest secrets and regrets, we see a woman buffeted by life but still full of fight in Angie Cruz’s How Not to Drown in a Glass of Water. The Guerreros have lived in upper Manhattan for twenty years, and take radically different paths when faced with encroaching gentrification in Cleyvis Natera’s Neruda on the Park.
