Fresh Docs Screening of "This Taco Truck Kills Fascists"

Along with the Southern Documentary Fund, we are pleased to present a free screening of "This Taco Truck Kills Fascists," a feature documentary film by Rodrigo Dorfman.

New Orleans-based performance activist Jose Torres-Tama has a dream: to create a revolutionary Taco Truck Theatre with a simple message: "No guacamole for immigrant haters". Inspired by Woody Guthrie's motto: this machine kills fascists, "This Taco Truck Kills Fascists" weaves two narratives: the classic "against all odds" story of an immigrant artist of color bringing the voices of radical Black performers and undocumented workers out of the shadows and the story of a father struggling to raise his two boys into political consciousness in the Age of Trump.

The film is presented as part of the Fresh Docs series featuring documentary works-in-progress; following the screenings, a moderated conversation with the filmmaker will be held, during which the audience provides valuable feedback.

Note: Fresh Docs screenings are free, but attendees must RESERVE A TICKET via Eventbrite using this link:
