Join us in exploring storytelling through film and media of the diverse experiences within the Latinx community. The event will host a screening of "MIRA", a film that tackles the depths of grief. "MIRA" tells the story of a woman who is grieving the loss of her mother and turns to her cherished doll for comfort before realizing that her sorrow has taken on a sinister form. The screening will be followed by an interactive storytelling workshop that explores the horror genre and a Q&A diving into the foundations of storytelling and what representation really means in the Latinx community. The workshop will be led by the film maker and the co-director of "Mira."

Karla Garcia, film maker and co-director of Mira, was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. She is a storyteller at heart, who is driven by a deep passion for the art of filmmaking. As an aspiring filmmaker, she is dedicated to crafting powerful narratives through directing, screenwriting, and cinematography.

Katherine Divas-Juarez, actor and co-director of MIRA, is a recent alum of CSUMB with a Bachelors Degree in Cinematic Arts focusing on creative directing and marketing. Katherine aims to be part of breaking barriers in the film industry as well as staying true to telling untold stories and perspectives through visual art and media.
