The Abraham Lincoln Brigade Archives presents Imaging Impunity: ALBA Human Rights Documentary Film Festival, Sept. 29 - Oct. 1 in New York.  Latin American films include:

Bolivar Twilight gives voice to gold miners in Colombia faced with the critical situation created by the arrival of government-endorsed international mining corporations.

A Quiet Inquisition
In 2006, the newly elected government of Daniel Ortega in Nicaragua overturned a 130-year-old law protecting therapeutic abortion. A Quiet Inquisition documents the harrowing implications of this action against the backdrop of a political, religious and historically complex national identity. As the stakes rise, one doctor's outrage transforms into willingness to act boldly in the face of the new situation.

New York: Sept. 29 - Oct. 1 at the Instituto Cervantes. Full information is available here.
