Award-Winning Film by EWU Student

We are pleased to offer a free screening of the short film, First Time Home, co-directed by our own EWU first-year student, Noemi Librado-Sanchez. This award winning film documents the journey of four teenage cousins who explore their indigenous Mexican roots while visiting their gravely ill grandfather in Mexico. The film was shot and directed by Noemi, Esmirna, Heriberto, and Esmeralda, family members who are Indigenous Triqui second-generation immigrants born in the United States. The cousins hope their film introduces viewers to the lives and realities of immigrants, farmworkers, and Indigenous families like theirs, showing how they are all connected, even across borders. After the screening, sisters, Noemi and Esmirna will share their experiences creating this film, and answer audience questions.  Flyer HERE
