22nd November. This page is under construction, sorry for all the mess. The screening information is correct.
One of the most supportive countries in the lead up to the Global Première September 22nd, 2009. However, the film never screened as political unrest disturbed the lives of many in Honduras, preventing the event from taking place. This small island country is highly exposed to the weather events that are made more extreme due to climate change.
I'm the person in charge of the AOS screening in Honduras, Central America. We were ready to present it in four different locations and free of charge to the general public. The venues were pier in a small caribbean island (Utila), a university in a coastal town, an artsy bar & a beautiful museum in Tegucigalpa. All of the owners and managers agreed to show the movie voluntarily. Now, because of the political instability and the human rights violations that have not ceased since yesterday (link to the BBC article), we are forced to draw back from the event.
The "de facto" government have set up a nationwide curfew until 6 pm, but will likely extend until tomorrow and who knows when. Independent tele and radio stations have been cut off, roads blocked, tear gas, "rubber" bullets and a handful of thousands disarmed people who are resisting are painting a heartbreaking canvas. It is disgraceful. Truly.
Hey thanks for making such a film and distributing freely across the world. People like you, in times like this, are a source of inspiration. We will present your film once the situation improves.
Best of luck and my very best wishes for the rest of the world presentation.
