February 16th Tribeca Film Institute will partner with the New School to present a Case Study of Entre Nos, a Cinereach grantee. Tribeca Film Institute’s blog post reads, “What makes this film so wonderful is that it is based on a true story, and so it is told from the heart. What makes it astounding is that Paola and Gloria made it for next to nothing.” Both Paola Mendoza and Gloria LaMorte will be present to discuss the process of getting their award-winning film made. No tickets or reservations are required. Please click here for more information.
