Cultural Capital: Mujeres de Cine/Films Across Borders
Celebrate the role of women in Spain’s film industry with a special screening.
Director Ana Asensio’s award-winning debut feature, “Most Beautiful Island,” (80 min.) is a chilling portrait of an undocumented young woman who struggles to begin a new life in New York City. After being offered a great opportunity, she discovers she has been lured into a dangerous game. A 2017 New York Times critic pick, the film tackles the “dark corners of the immigrant experience in New York City, especially for women.”
This Cultural Capital program partnership is presented by the museum’s Women, Arts, and Social Change initiative in collaboration with SPAIN arts & culture’s Mujeres de Cine: Traveling Spanish Film Showcase Made by Women and Films Across Borders: Stories of Women, a multicultural film series.
