Anoka-Ramsey Provides Free, Public Screening of Latina Film, Quita Mitos, March 5

February 14, 2013

The public is encouraged to join Anoka-Ramsey Community College’s Office of Diversity and Multiculturalism and Counseling Services to celebrate Latina women and explore the complex, bitingly humorous film:

Quita Mitos
Tuesday, March 5, 2013
2 to 4 p.m.
Coon Rapids Campus Performing Arts Center
Free and open to the public.

Quita Mitos is an 85-minute play about the life of three geographically and culturally adrift Mexican women on the border between Mexican and American identity. On the run from their marriage, children, mothers and men, these women find themselves trapped in a cheap motel room. The play will lead into a 30-minute discussion.

“This performance allows local audiences an unique opportunity to become more aware of social justice issues such as immigration, gender equity, racism and domestic violence,” says Merlita Lockman, Anoka-Ramsey’s Interim Director of Diversity and Multiculturalism.

The playwright Tanya Saracho, named "Best New Playwright of 2010" by Chicago Magazine, is the co-founder and former artistic director of Teatro Luna, Chicago's first all-Latina performance company.
