Rooftop Films @ El Museo: Los Herederos
Saturday, August 15 8pm–11pm

Los Herederos (The Inheritors) takes an intimate look at the heritage of poverty in rural Latin America, where back-breaking work begins almost at birth, schooling is largely out of reach, and yet, children develop amazing skills to help their families stay afloat. Director: Eugenio Polgovsky (Mexico, 90 min. Spanish with English subtitles). Live pre-show musical performance by Lazaro Valiente from Mexico City at 8:30pm; film begins at 9pm.

Bomba + Plena with Alma Moyo
Thursday, August 20 6:30pm–8:30pm

Rooted in African traditions, Bomba y Plena is a political and spiritual expression through percussion, song and dance. The bomba was played and danced in clearings of Puerto Rico’s sugar cane fields, town plazas, and during Catholic festivals. Today the music lives on in the work of Alma Moyo, a 13-member musical group whose electric rhythms invite hours of non-stop dancing.
FREE ADMISSION for all audiences. Space is limited, on a first-come, first-served basis.
