Varsity Punks - Anthony Solorzano

A.J. MONTOYA is the coolest kid on campus. He’s a senior and star quarterback with dreams of leading his school to a championship. At the other end of the pecking order are the most invisible athletes on campus, the boys’ cross country team -- ragtag bunch of misfits led by their own team captain, ROSIE. The two teams share a mutual disdain for one another, that is, until A.J. injures his hand, ending his football season and destroying his dreams of glory. In desperation, A.J. realizes that his last shot at a championship is to take his running game off the field and onto the cross country course, a situation that brings both captains and social groups into strife.

Victinas de Guernica - Ferran Caum

On April 26, 1937, at four in the afternoon, the Basque people of Guernika were systematically bombarded by German and Italian planes in the service of dictator Franco. The destruction of the town was practically total and the number of civilian victims was counted in the hundreds. Pablo Picasso was shocked by the news of the first bombing whose target was a defenseless, civilian population. The painter from Malaga takes the bombing of Guernica as the motif of the Guernica painting to make a denunciation of the barbs which caused so much pain and shock to the innocent victims.

 

From the victims of Guernika, it passes to the victims of El Salvador who suffered throughThe Civil War between 1980 and 1992. With no regard of who is who, the destructive machinery of war causes pain and suffering on civilian victims, innocent and defenseless . These Salvadoran deaths are recorded in the "Monument to the Memory and the Truth" of San Salvador. From El Salvador and the hand of the Guernica painting, the commitment to peace, reconciliation and recognition of the victims is made.
