Director Oscar Guerra

Join us for a conversation with Oscar Guerra about his journey into digital film, the power of documentaries for social change, and why it was important to film the story of a Connecticut Latinx immigrant family. The conversation will be followed by a short film screening of “Love, Life & The Virus” (PBS FRONTLINE) and an audience Q&A. This event is part of Latinx Heritage Month celebrations.
