Documentary filmmaker, Mitchell Teplitsky presents his new film, Return to the Andes – a sequel to the 2007 documentary, Soy Andina. In Return to the Andes, a Peruvian woman living in New York City travels back to her birthplace to help local women start their own businesses — and ends up running for mayor. Will she become the first woman to be elected mayor of her town, running on a platform of sustainable development and anti-corruption? The screening will be followed by commentary and Q & A with Teplitsky and protagonist, Nélida Silva.
