"Too Long Here" Film Screening

With director Emily Packer

On August 18, 1971, First Lady Pat Nixon declared a stretch of land along the US-Mexico border a “Friendship Park,” willing two countries toward a common future. Decades later, this spirited inauguration hangs above the meeting place like a specter, charged by the border’s harsh realities. Vibrant digitized color film from the Richard Nixon Presidential Library along with stirring musical and oral performances from the inaugural event clash against the present, as TOO LONG HERE ponders the implications of an empty promise. Produced by Friends of Friendship Park & Marginal Gap Films. Click on "Map or Link" below and use passcode 'FirstLady' to enter.
