Santa Clarita resident Laura Carlson debuted the Spanish version of her short film, “Beyond Barriers: Esperanza Sin Fronteras,” at the Laemmle Theater in Newhall.
“Beyond Barriers: Esperanza Sin Fronteras” is a 28-minute short film looking at the Naco Wellness Initiative in Naco, Sonora, Mexico, started by Carlson’s uncle-in-law, Tom Carlson, as “people from opposite sides of the U.S.-Mexico border come together despite economic, health care, and political barriers to create a center of wellness and hope.”
After the screening, Carlson invited the community for a Q&A. Faculty and students from College of the Canyons as well as Chair of the Modern Languages Department, Claudia Acosta, and City of Santa Clarita Mayor, Bill Miranda participated.
