The Latin American Cinemateca of Los Angeles (LACLA), will present three selections from Cine sin fronteras. Cine sin fronteras is a side bar of the Morelia International Film Festival, the prestigious Mexican film competition held annually in Morelia, México. These films were selected by Jesse Lerner Professor of Media Studies at Pitzer College in Pomona as works that both aesthetically and thematically resonate with the Los Angeles community.

Polvo- (Dust) (28-min) – Director Angela Reginato - an experimental essay film that chronicles the real-life disappearance of the son of a French woman and her American husband from Mexico City during the politically charged late 1970s. Composed from home movies, educational films, and original Super 8 footage, Polvo examines how memory is shaped by our surroundings and how seemingly unrelated images, real or imagined, fuse to become one story in our minds.

Los ABC's: Que vivan los muertos! - (5 minutes) - Director: John Jota Leaños is a Xicano docu- animation cataloguing the real-life testimony of skeletons who have returned to tell their stories of life and death at war. Do you remember your ABCs? No? Well, you're in luck. Sing along with this group of animated Mariachi social documentarians who will guide you through in a history that will make you laugh, cry, and wonder why.

La batalla de los invisibles - (50 minutes) - Director: Manuel Carlos de Alba y del Castillo Negrete - This documentary tells the story of the five year struggle of 2300 janitorial workers, most of them undocumented and non-English speakers, against the largest supermarket chains in the United States, the largest legal case of its kind to date.

The three films have a total running time of 1 hour and 33 minutes:
