MAHWAH, N.J. — The Berrie Center Performing Artist Series at Ramapo College of New Jersey is planning a dynamic program for the start of Hispanic-Latinx Heritage Month on Saturday, September 24 at 8 p.m.

Tertulia! opens with the 40-minute documentary film “Desarraigo Y Esperanza (Displacement and Hope)” followed by Argentinian folk musicians Mate Amargo and Tango dancers Karina Romero and Jorge Carmona. The film, by Ramapo Professor Marta Bautis, is the story of a young Latin American man, within the context of anti-migratory policies in the United States and is the first child adopted by Father Fabian Arias, now the guardian of dozens of minors who entered the US without documents. In a special pre-show conversation, Bautis will be joined by Fr. Arias beginning at 7 p.m. in the Adler Theater.

The Berrie Center for the Arts is a community resource generously funded by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.  Events are open to the public with discounts for children 17 and under and they offer easy access and free parking.
