FOREST IN THE SKY (EL TRIUNFO) (UK/Mexico, 2015, 15 min.)
The cloud forests of El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve, high in the remote Sierra Madre de Chiapas mountains in Mexico, are one of the most magical places on earth. An ancient forest that is home for giant trees, quetzals, horned guans and a world of wildlife found nowhere else in the country. And yet, even here, we find an ecosystem fighting for survival. Directed by Pierangelo Pirak and Jaime Rojo. Produced by Matt Walker and BBC Earth.

KINGS OF NOWHERE (Mexico, 2015, 83 min.) Washington, DC Premiere
The construction of a dam turned the Mexican village of San Marcos into a waterlogged ghost town, but three families refuse to surrender their home to the flood. Even the constant, lurking threat of armed gangs roving the countryside and the loneliness of living amid ruins can't deter them from their routines. They keep the tortillería open, weed the pavement in the town square, and rove the inundated streets in boats or on horseback. Betzabé García's observational approach brings out the humor and eerie beauty of their singular situation. Directed by Betzabé García and produced by Hugo Espinosa and Betzabé García.

Introduction by Alexandra Garcia, Executive Director, International League of Conservation Photographers. Discussion with Kings of Nowhere filmmaker Betzabé García follows screening.

Thanks to the Reva and David Logan Foundation for its support of this evening.
