Cine Las Americas

Making the River was invited to screen at Cine Las Americas in Austin, TX. It was a great town and wonderful festival. The staff at Cine Las Americas were very hospitable and had an amazing selection of films.

Austin is also the location of Resistencia Bookstore, founded by Raul Salinas. Raul was a key figure in the Simmons Brothers Defense committee.

Resistencia bookstore has provided space for grassroots organizational activity by various groups like the Austin Cuba Committee, the Leonard Peltier Support Group, and El Comite en Solidaridad con Chiapas y Mexico; as well as hosting Pastors and Veterans for Peace delegations to Cuba and Nicaragua.

Thank you for the support of everyone who attended the festival, Cine Las Americas, and Resistencia Bookstore! 🙂
