Rekindling the Intellectual, Spiritual, Creative legacy of Christians in Culture

sinnoCraig Detweiler hosts a discussion at Sundance/Windrider with writer & director Cary Joji Fukunaga and Producer Amy Kaufman about their film Sin Nombre. The Sundance description is as follows: It's almost impossible to believe that Sin Nombre is Cary Joji Fukunaga's feature debut; its storytelling is so accomplished, its visual style so crisp, and its heightened naturalism and performances so textured. A social-political thriller in the tradition of American film noir, Sin Nombre is set on the border, where Mexico becomes the crucible and the fearsome gangs of today's Mexican countryside, the gauntlet, to freedom. The stories of Sayra, a teenager living in Honduras and hungering for a brighter future, and teen gang members Smiley and Casper, for whom the Mara Salvatrucha is nearly their entire universe, become interlaced on the train to the border, a journey that will determine the future of their lives.
