It is always an honor to be the headquarters for the Mostra de cinema del Fons Mallorquí de cooperació, an audiovisual initiative to publicize different realities of the place where we live and get to know those places that we will never visit, but not for that reason they are less important. At a time when tensions on the fence are growing, one must stop to see what it really means to be an immigrant.
From Wednesday 26 to Friday 28 we will have a daily screening of the selection that the Fons has made for this Mostra.
