Premiered in Seattle in June 2016
Zona Intangible (directed by Ann Hedreen and Rustin Thompson) is a film about memory and migration, home and history. Imagine having to leave your home, your comfort and all your belongings in search of a place to live in peace, having to settle wherever you can. Refugees In Peru who were fleeing the Shining Path terrorists have built a new city called Manchay on the outskirts of Lima. A network of teachers, volunteers, medical professionals and one very determined priest are helping the refugees carve a new life from an abandoned gravel pit. A gift from an American family funded construction of the city’s first modern health clinic, which, against great odds, has thrived for 13 years. The film shows how a single act of generosity can ripple forward and backward through time, improving the health and well-being of a community founded on nothing but resilience and hope.
