(Jan. 12, 2010)--The UTSA Academy for Teacher Excellence, UTSA student group Social Workers Advocating for Change Together (SWACT) and Guadalupe Street Coffee will host a free screening of the suspense thriller "Bordertown" at 6 p.m. Friday, Jan. 15 at Guadalupe Street Coffee, 1320 Guadalupe St., one mile west of the UTSA Downtown Campus.
The screening is a part of SWACT's new monthly movie series which is free to the UTSA and San Antonio communities. Guadalupe Street Coffee House is a community development project where local students can use free public computers to do homework and have a safe place to visit and study.
Based on a true story surrounding the multiple murders of young women in Juárez, Chihuahua, "Bordertown" is directed by celebrated Latino director Gregory Nava and features Jennifer Lopez, Martin Sheen, Antonio Banderas and Peter Gonzales Falcon.
Falcon, an award winning actor and filmmaker, will attend the screening in support of the educational mission of the Guadalupe Street Coffee House.
In the movie, Lopez plays an impassioned American reporter working for the Chicago Sentinel who goes to Juarez to investigate a series of mysterious slayings involving young factory women from all over Mexico. As she discovers hundreds of victims, she gains the trust of local factory workers but falls into danger.
Following the screening, Jennifer Matthews, associate professor of anthropology at Trinity University, will facilitate a short discussion on the social issues relevant to the movie.
