Join the Mexican Cultural Institute as it presents the film El patio de mi casa by Carlos Hagerman in collaboration with the Bowen Center for the Study of the Family. Along with the screening come celebrate the launching of the translation into Spanish of Dr. Bowen's classic book Family therapy in clinical practice.

El patio de mi casa: How does one prepare for the death of their parents? In his latest film, Hagerman faces this question while composing a loving portrait of Doris and Oscar, his parents. This documentary deals with the work to which the couple devoted their life - promoting educational opportunities in rural and indigenous communities in Mexico. The result is a film about the possibilities of transforming the lives of people through the idea of continuing teaching and learning.
