(MAHWAH, NJ) -- The Berrie Center Performing Artist Series at Ramapo College of New Jersey is planning a dynamic program for the start of Hispanic-Latinx Heritage Month on Saturday, September 24 at 8:00pm.
Tertulia! opens with the 40-minute documentary film “Desarraigo Y Esperanza (Displacement and Hope)” followed by Argentinian folk musicians Mate Amargo and Tango dancers Karina Romero and Jorge Carmona. The film, by Ramapo Professor Marta Bautis, is the story of a young Latin American man, within the context of anti-migratory policies in the United States and is the first child adopted by Father Fabian Arias, now the guardian of dozens of minors who entered the US without documents.
In a special pre-show conversation, Bautis will be joined by Fr. Arias beginning at 7:00pm in the Adler Theater.
Tickets are available for purchase online. The Berrie Center for the Arts is located at 505 Ramapo Valley Road in Mahwah, New Jersey. For information on COVID 19 Health and Safety, driving directions, parking, accessibility, or some dining options in the area, click here.
