30 Minutes speaks with Tucson Samaritans volunteer Michael Hyatt and No More Deaths volunteer Jim Marx. The two Southern Arizona humanitarian aid organizations present a screening of Vincent De La Torre’s newly released film Trails of Hope and Terror on Thursday, December 4 at 7:00pm at the Loft Cinema.

The story is based on the book Trails of Hope and Terror written by the filmmaker’s father, Dr. Miguel A. De La Torre, Professor of Social Ethics and Latino/a Studies at Iliff School of Theology in Denver, Colorado.
There will be a panel discussion and Q & A with the filmmakers and representatives from No More Deaths and Tucson Samaritans after the film. All proceeds from the evening will go toward the life-saving work of both organizations. General admission tickets are available for $15 at the loftcinema.com or at tucsonsamaritans.org. There will also be a limited number of VIP tickets available for $30.
