Discover Art & Design: Pamela Maria Chavez's Caracol Cruzando

Feb 4, 2020

Animation writer, director and illustrator Pamela Chavez brings her timely and poignant film Caracol Cruzando to 92Y’s Discover Art & Design Series.

Animated short Caracol Cruzando shows immigration experience through the eyes of a child. The story tells the tale of Caracol and her father crossing the border separately from her mother and brother. They run into trouble when Caracol tries to sneak her pet turtle into the U.S. in her backpack, and the pair face uncertainty about when they will be reunited with the rest of her family.

The screening will be followed by an interactive presentation with Pamela Chavez.
