Amy Goodman interviews David Riker, director of "The Girl"

New York, NY

New York, NY ( see map )
Amy Goodman will interview director David Riker, after the 7:30 pm screening of The Girl at The Film Society of Lincoln Center.

The Girl, which stars Abbie Cornish, tells the story of Ashley, a single mother and recovering alcoholic trying to rebuild her life after losing custody of her son and her job at a big box store in Austin, TX. Desperate for cash, Ashley offers her services as a “coyote” for a Mexican family trying to cross the border illegally. When the attempted crossing ends in tragedy, Ashley finds herself playing surrogate mother to a lost and confused young girl desperate to find whatever family she has left. The journey takes us into the heart of Mexico, and of a woman trying to make amends for her troubled past.

The Girl is the long awaited follow-up to Riker’s acclaimed debut, La Ciudad, a quartet of stories about Spanish-speaking immigrants trying to make it in New York.
