This Sunday at 11:00 hrs, join us for the screening of the documentary Build Ramps Not Walls, directed by Brian Adamkiewcz at Cinemex Plaza la Luciérnaga.
This film project tells the story of Nat and Emilio, two skaters in a community in the Mexican Pacific who search for an answer to the negative rhetoric that has come up after the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election.
The skating community decided to unite to build a new ramp with the same materials that would be used for building the wall that would separate the US and Mexico. In the process of building the ramp, skaters of different lifestyles, races, ages, genders and socioeconomic levels knock down all barriers toward reaching a common goal, to create a skatepark where Mexicans, Americans and skaters of all nationalities can practice the sport that unites them.
The screening comes with a special surprise prepares for the documentary’s players that have arrived to GIFF to promote the slogan “We say Build Ramps that unite, Not Walls that divide”. Don’t miss this exceptional presentation!
