“Kino: La Leyenda del Padre Negro”
December 4, 2014 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pmFree
The Consulate General of Mexico in Nogales, Arizona, the Cultural Arts Committee, Nogales Rochlin Public Library and The Pimeria Historical Society are pleased to screen this film that highlights Padre Kino’s trajectory for our lands.
While dying in a hut, Jesuit Eusebio Francisco Kino recalls the events that led him from Italy to New Spain, where he accompanied the expedition of Admiral Atondo as a cartographer and missionary. During his stay in California and Sonora, Kino witnesses the abuse of Spaniards towards indigenous, a situation which sometimes turns against his evangelizing mission. Film conducted in Spanish.
