By Jenny Brundin
Salt Lake City, UT – Monday evening, the Salt Lake City Film Center will present Ninos de la Calle, a powerful documentary focusing on a few of the 20,000 children who live and sleep on Mexico City streets. Jenny Brundin talks with filmmaker Eva Aridjis, who took her camera inside the plastic tarps where the children live. Aridjis interviews them about their harsh, drug-addicted lives and why they left home for the streets.
On Monday, October 2, the Salt Lake City Film Center will present Ninos de la Calle as part of its Spanish Language Film Series. Director Eva Aridjis will attend the screening, which takes place at 7:00 p.m. at the Salt Lake City Library Auditorium. For more information, call the Center at 746-7000 or visit them on-line.
