Feature Film 


Residents of the Catalinas community gather to think about a movie of their history. The members of the Catalinas Sur Theater Group are preparing to present their already classic show "Come From Far Away" in the square of the neighborhood. We Came From Far Away, the movie, erases the boundary between documentary and fiction, past and present meet and, among memories, songs, puppets and period costumes, the stories of at least three generations of Italians, Galicians and Jews (that unite grandparents, children and grandchildren) emerge, marked by migration and united over time by their entrepreneurial, solidarity and community.
