Ya no estoy aquí (I’m no Longer Here)

October 12, 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm

On Tuesday October 12 we continue to highlight prominent movies that challenge important social justice issues as they affect the world and the Hispanic community in particular. 

Ya no estoy aquí (I’m no Longer Here)

In the mountains of Monterrey, Mexico, a small street gang named “Los Terkos” spend their days listening to slowed down cumbia music and attending dance parties, showing off their outfits, hairstyles and gang alliances. These different bands of disaffected youth refer to themselves as Kolombianos, combining the Cholo culture with Colombian music. Ulises Samperio (17), the leader of Los Terkos, tries to protect his friends from the nefarious elements of a quickly evolving drug/political war, but after a misunderstanding with a local cartel, he is forced to leave for Jackson Heights, Queens, a diverse immigrant community in New York City. Ulises tries to assimilate, but when he learns that his gang and the whole Kolombia culture is under threat, he questions his place in America and longs to return home. (Description from IMDB)
