Zona Intangible

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.
