The video “Why I Am Here,” produced by CoFiA and Grupo Ellatu, will be screened at the Puffin Cultural Forum in Teaneck on Sunday, June 10, 2012, at 4 p.m. Both the videographer, Juan Pablo Morales Estrada, and the subject of the video, “Mr. Garcia,” will be present to discuss the film with the audience.
The presentation of the video will be followed by a performance by Grupo Folklórico Tikál, a local troupe performing traditional Guatemalan dances. They will present “The History of Tecún Umán,” the last King of the Quiche Mayan people who is honored as a hero because he defied the Spanish conquistadors, and gave his life for his people.
