Date: July 16th, 2006


Hello to all of you who have expressed interest at one time or another in the documentary "On The Edge: The Femicide in Ciudad Juarez." This is the first mailing to you from new mailing list software. I'll be sending periodic updates and news about the film and related information, including ongoing plans for an informative action campaign around the theatrical release of "Bordertown," the Jennifer Lopez hollywood movie that fictionalizes the Juarez situation.

This is a brief update to let you know that I am in the middle of a US/Mexico west coast screening tour with the film. Last Saturday I screened the film and spoke in Portland, to an audience of about 60. The discussion and Q&A afterward was wonderful and I was impressed with the knowledgable people present voicing their views and asking excellent questions. I was also thankful that Dan Denvir from Portland Central America Solidarity Committee could be there as a guest speaker on the subject.

I'm now in San Francisco to screen the film twice. Below is the entire rest of the schedule, starting with tonight.
If you're in any of these places or know people who are, I hope you can attend or pass on this information to them.

-Sunday, July 16, 8pm at ATA (21st and Valencia) in San Francisco.
-Monday, July 17, 8pm at Station 40 in San Francisco (3030B 16th Street, (across from Mission bart plaza) ).
-Thursday, July 20, 7pm at Echo Park Film Center, Los Angeles.
-Wednesday, July 26 in San Diego at Bard Hall, First Unitarian Universalist Church, 4190 Front St. Hillcrest. hosted by San Diego Indymedia.
