Film Discussion with Cecilia Cornejo

Sunday, January 31, 2021

On January 31, 2021 at 6:00 p.m. you will have the opportunity to discuss with Chilean-American documentary filmmaker, Cecilia Cornejo, her inspirational film: Ways of Being Home after an airing of the film for you to view from 3 p.m. Friday January 29 through 3:00 p.m. Sunday, January 31.

Cecilia, a professor of Cinema and Media Studies at Carleton College, is well known to Northfielders as the originator of The Wandering House and her previous film Making Noise – The Story of a Skatepark.

Her current work, filmed from 2016 to 2019, tells the story of Northfield’s immigrant community’s resilience, ingenuity, and fierce determination, having migrated here from the small agricultural town of Maltrata in the state of Veracruz. The film examines notions of belonging and the immigrant experience while exploring the traces of historical trauma on people and places. Co-sponsored with First UCC by NAIA (Northfield Area Interfaith Association).

Please view the film and then join us as we entertain angels unaware.
