Join us for a FREE screening of Undocumented Tales and Q&A session with creator Armando Ibanez following the screening.
Armando Ibanez is the creator of the Undocumented Tales web series. The series follows the story of Fernando, a queer Mexican immigrant trying to find his way in the United States. The series is based off of his life and the Latinx LGBTQ+ community. Through Undocumented Tales, Armando hopes to change the narrative of undocumented people on the screen and bring representation about a community not often seen in mainstream media.

Presented in partnership with Amy Gastelum and the Wonderland Film Festival.
Amy Gastelum is a freelance journalist, radio producer and teacher at IU Media School, living in Indy's Near Eastside. "I pursue stories that explore the binding tissue of human experience. My background as a registered nurse informs my work with a hearty blend of empathy and investigative drive. With each project, I try to confront failures of mainstream media and ignorance toward large portions of our national community. And whether I'm interviewing a courageous teenage mother, a drawbridge operator or a bestselling author, I'm captivated by the construct of personal truth. Our individual histories and mythologies are the fibers of our unique and collective human identity. In my work, I hope to demonstrate the capacity of free expression and sincere attention."
Wonderland Film Festival
Wonderland Film Festival's main goal is to get Indianapolis Near Eastside neighbors to make movies, building community along the way. Anyone who wants to try amateur filmmaking can be celebrated for who they are!
