“Border zones are contact zones and these are liminal spaces where the comfort of some bodies are built upon the violence and erasure of other bodies,” said Catherine Jonet, associate professor of gender and sexuality studies and Feminist Border Arts Film Festival director. “These videos show the different ways art can engage with the most pressing social issues of our time.”

The program is the first of two screening events for this year’s Feminist Border Arts Film Festival organized by gender and sexuality studies in the Department of Interdisciplinary Studies in collaboration with NMSU’s Creative Media Institute. The main program of the third annual Feminist Border Arts Film Festival will screen films from 6–8:30 p.m. April 16 in the CMI Digital Theater.

The exhibit is free and open to the public. For more information, visit genders.nmsu.edu-film-festival.
