Join us for an engaging conversation as we explore the intersection of race and sexual orientation and the story told in the 2009 film La Mission with filmmaker, Peter Bratt. Bratt is an acclaimed director, screenwriter and producer. His first film, Follow Me Home, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in official competition in 1996. It opened audiences’ eyes with its honest look at the social issues faced by five urban individuals as they traveled across the United States to Washington, D.C. Its exploration of the journey to redemption and the ultimate reach toward conquering societal ills is also a theme explored in Bratt’s sophomore effort, La Mission.
