In January, AVSI-USA will be presenting two debut screenings of an award-winning documentary about Crecemos, an education and nutrition center in Oaxaca, Mexico, a long-term partner of the international NGO.
THE AWAKENED HEART first screening will take place in New York on January 14, 2017, as part of the New York Encounter, and in Washington DC, on January 25, 2017, at the Mexican Cultural Institute. Screenings will be followed by a Q&A discussion with Executive Director of Crecemos, Maria del Socorro del Rio.
Co-directed by Giovanni Morricone and Simonetta D'Italia, the short documentary The Awakened Heart was shot entirely over three and a half days in November 2015, in the slums of Oaxaca. Crecemos is located in the most dangerous neighborhood of Oaxaca City.
