“We invite local community members to head over to the Museum of History to enjoy this public screening of this award-winning film. Partnering with the Consulate General of Mexico offers an excellent opportunity to embrace cultural diplomacy, and engage a broader audience,” said Dr. Vladimir von Tsurikov, Director of the El Paso Museum of History.
This screening, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., at 510 North Santa Fe Street, is hosted in partnership with the Consulate General of Mexico to commemorate Women’s History Month.

Directed by Alfonso Cuarón, the film follows a year in the life of Cleo, a young domestic worker employed by a middle-class family in the neighborhood of Roma in Mexico City.
The film captures her gracefully struggle against the social, political, and economic hierarchies of the 1970s, and what the implications of these systems mean for Cleo and her loved ones. “ROMA” won both an Academy Award and BAFTA for Best Foreign Language Film. Cuarón won an Academy Award, Golden Globe, and BAFTA for Best Director.
The El Paso Museum of History exists for the educational benefit of the community and visitors. It promotes the understanding and significance of the rich multicultural and multinational history of the border region known as the Pass of the North.
The event is open to the public. Admission to the El Paso Museum of History is free.
