Migration and Hope: A Virtual Panel Discussion of the Documentary Nómadas


Sunday, April 25

2pm Where


Admission Registration required

The 2019 documentary Nómadas (Nomads) follows some of the world’s most charismatic animals as they travel to and from Mexico across the span of a year. Using unprecedented access to some of the country’s most protected sites, the film explores the relationship between family members as they battle to survive. Mixing moments of exquisite intimacy with fast-paced action sequences, Nomads captures the epic scope of Mexico’s wildlife while it reflects on two of the most pressing issues of our time: migration and the state of our fragile natural environment.

Writer and director Emiliano Ruprah and producer Paula Arroio will be joined by HRM Teaching Artist-in-Residence Erika Harrsch, whose art uses the monarch butterfly as a metaphor for the universal condition of migration and metamorphosis.

Special Access to the Movie Nómadas
We invite you to watch the feature-length film Nómadas (81 minutes), in the original Spanish, with English subtitles, presented by Oscura Producciones & Earth Touch in Association with Smithsonian Networks, during the week preceding the virtual panel discussion (available from 10am Sunday, April 18 to 10pm Saturday, April 24) by registering for the panel through the HRM website. You will be sent a private password-protected link for access to the film by email. This event is available only to viewers who are located in the United States, as the documentary has limited distribution before its global release.
