GRANITE FALLS — A film screening and director’s talk about rural Mexico and rural Minnesota connections will be from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 11, at the Pioneer PBS studio in Granite Falls.

“Ways of Being Home: Between Northfield & Maltrata” is an intimate cinematic portrait of two small towns — one in Mexico and one in Minnesota — providing an evocative audiovisual meditation on the experience of Mexican immigrants living and working in rural America.

It will be followed by a discussion with the director, Cecilia Cornejo Sotelo, moderated by Pioneer PBS editor and videographer Esmeralda Ziemer.

It will also be available to stream online. It is free and open to the public; masks will be required for in-person attendance. Register for the in person or online event at .

The screening is part of the WE CAN! (Women’s Empowerment Creative Action Network) event series presented in partnership with Department of Public Transformation and Pioneer PBS.
