Please join Pride Film Festival for a special screening of the feature film En Algun Lugar. The screening will be on February 25 at 7:30pm at Pride Arts Center. There will be a brief Q&A following the screening with the filmmakers and cast.

Writer-director Tadeo Garcia follows up his 2004 debut feature ON THE DOWN LOW with a powerful love story set against the backdrop of the controversial U.S. immigration system. Both Abel (Nelson A. Rodriguez), who works in Chicago in social services, and Diego (Andrew L. Saenz), an auto mechanic, have waited a long time for the love they have yearned for. After several chance meetings the two finally hook up and quickly fall deeply for each other. But Diego has been hiding a secret: he’s an undocumented immigrant and his repeated attempts to attain citizenship have led nowhere. When word reaches him that his mother is dying, Diego must decide whether or not to risk a trip back to Mexico, knowing he will jeopardize his chances of returning to America and to a future with Abel. And what will Abel do when he learns the truth? Can their love survive the dangerous choice the couple ultimately makes?

En Algun Lugar has been screened at Reeling Film Fest, Driftless Film Festival, Chicano International Film Festival, and Desperado Film Festival.
