Zona Intangible (2016; screenings listed here)

In this story of resilience and hope, writer-director Ann Hedreen traces the unlikely connection between the people of an asentamiento humano (human settlement) on the outskirts of Lima, and her great-uncle, a Swedish-American pioneer of the modern Peruvian fishing industry. The film shows how a single act of generosity ripples forward and backward through time, improving lives in the present and adding new understanding to the role of an outsider in the history of a country.
