“A BETTER LIFE” showing set for March 10 in Las Cruces….

This message from Alianza para Solicitantes de Asilo Político
(Political Asylum Seekers Alliance):

A showing of “A Better Life” to benefit asylum seekers journalist
Emilio Gutierrez Soto and his son Oscar will take place Saturday,
March 10 at Alma d’Arte H.S., 5-8 pm. The evening will include a
Skype interview with director Chris Weitz. We’re still in the
planning stages but I do know this will be a low cost event because we
want as many people including students to see this important film
about a Mexican immigrant to the U.S. Copies of the film will be on
sale at the event at a minimal cost.

This event is sponsored by Alianza para Solicitantes de Asilo Político
(Political Asylum Seekers Alliance), formerly known as Comite de
Amigos de Emilio.

Director Chris Weitz directed one of my favorite films starring Hugh
Grant, About a Boy. Here are links to info on the award-winning movie
A Better Life and its star, Academy Award and SAG nominee for Best
Actor Demian Bichir. [YES!!! He’s nominated and will attend the
Oscars just like George Clooney!!!]
