All in the community are invited to a special opportunity on Thursday, March 2, from 7pm-8:30pm at Loutit District Library in Grand Haven—a special screening of the documentary Being Eñye, followed by a panel discussion with the filmmakers Denise Soler Cox & Henry Ansbacher, Oscar-nominated documentary veteran, alongside of local Latino & Latina leaders from Ottawa County, a discussion that is designed to give attendees an opportunity to express their emotions and share their reflections in a safe environment. The evening is called “The Eñye Experience.”
The Eñye Experience is a 90-minute program that combines a cinematic screening of Being Eñye with a dynamic personal presentation by Soler Cox, co-director and the film’s central character. Soler Cox leads the audience by example on a powerful journey of cultural self-discovery. At key, dramatic moments, the movie stops and Soler Cox walks on stage to engage directly with the audience. The result is a unique, high- energy, interactive experience that engages and inspires a broad general audience.
This opportunity is funded by a generous grant from the Greatest Needs Fund of the Grand Haven Area Community Foundation. It is being organized by the El Corazón Latino Ministry Initiative of St. John’s Episcopal Church, in collaboration with the Lakeshore Ethnic Diversity Alliance. It is being hosted at Loutit District Library.
