2019 Tacoma Film Festival Official Selection | OPENING NIGHT

Celebrate Opening Night of the 14th annual Tacoma Film Festival at The Pantages Theater with a screening of The Infiltrators and community event in partnership with local immigrant rights and anti-deportation groups. 

Doors open at 6pm. Arrive before the screening to enjoy refreshments and meet film fans, filmmakers, and community groups before the film. 

In The Infiltrators  directors Cristina Ibarra and Alex Rivera present a hybrid cinematic language, combining familiar documentary form and scripted narrative to map an uncharted domain: inside an Obama-era immigration detention system. Based on true events, The Infiltrators is both a suspenseful account of a high-stakes mission and an emotionally charged portrait of visionary youth fighting for their community. The film's innovative storytelling approach in connection with a crucial public issue exemplifies TFF's mission to bring thought-provoking works to our community. 

Matt Martinez (Director of Content, KNKX) will facilitate a discussion with director Alex Rivera after the film, including an audience Q&A. 

Hear from and connect with local immigrant rights and anti-deportation activists and organizations in a resource-sharing reception before and after the film.

The Infiltrators is unflinching yet entertaining storytelling and couldn't be timelier in this oppressive age of Trumpism.

Now more than ever we need to be reminded that the poor and huddled masses are real people with real families, all yearning to be free.

Directors Cristina Ibarra and Alex Rivera create a hybrid work that is equal parts journalistic exposé and taut drama, and one hundred percent cinema.
