Join Holocaust Museum Houston for a screening of the documentary, "Cuatro Puntos Cardinales," followed by a Q&A session with the film's director, Javier Kafie. This documentary portrays stories from El Salvador. This film shows the cultural, social and ecological diversity of the region. From surfing communities to coffee plantations, from ex-guerrilla warzones to towns that live almost entirely on handicrafts; in such a small country as El Salvador, there's plenty to see and many stories to tell.
Director Javier Kafie (Mexico City, 1982) grew up between Mexico, Central America and the United States, finishing a degree in Literary, Cultural and Media Studies at the University of Siegen, Germany. In 2011, he directed the short documentary, "Perkin." In 2014, he produced the documentary, "El Salvador: Cuatro Puntos Cardinales," and the fictional short film, "Perfect Together." In 2015, he wrote and produced "Nothing," winner of the Short Fiction category in the ICARO Central American Film Festival. He lives in San Salvador and works as a writer and filmmaker.
