TONIGHT at the UW - Film: Niña Quebrada


WHEN: TODAY, March 12 7-9pm
WHERE: UW Campus, HUB Auditorium

Diana Romero's film, Niña Quebrada ("Broken Girl"), is the story of Lucena, a teenage girl who runs away from her family in Mexico for the love of a boyfriend who promises her a better life in Los Angeles. The reality, unbeknownst to her, is that she has been sold into sex slavery. Against the backdrop of an illegal cockfighting ring, Lucena must fight for her life to escape the horrors of this nightmarish world of child prostitution and human trafficking.

Director Diana Romero and a panel of expert guests are available for Q&A after the screening.
