As part of the celebrations of Pride Month, the Embassy of Mexico, in collaboration with the Australian National University’s Latin American Students Association (LASA); the Australian National Centre for Latin American Studies (ANCLAS); the Australian National University Gender Institute; and the ANU Film Group (ANUFG) have the pleasure to invite you to the screening of the Sundance-awarded film Te llevo conmigo (I carry you with me)
Based on true love, this decades-spanning romance begins in Mexico
between an aspiring chef (Armando Espitia) and a teacher (Christian
Vázquez). Their lives restart in incredible ways as societal pressure
propels them to embark on a treacherous journey to New York City with
dreams, hopes, and memories in tow.
Part lyrical romance, part immigrant justice documentary, I Carry You With Me soars as it tells its remarkable story with deep, unreserved empathy.

The love story of Ivan and Gerardo is an important one, and by sharing it, Ewing brings attention to the challenges facing LGBTQ people in Mexico….
Ewing's sensitive naturalism gives this poignant story intense intimacy and universality, with haunting scenes crossing the night deserts, evading untold dangers, which have new urgency with what we know now.
