DESCRIPTION

"Love in a Cemetery" exhibition presents its first lecture entitled the Fruits of War

Fruits of War” tells the story of four young men’s struggle to survive when they are deported to El Salvador after spending most of their lives as members of the Mara Salvatrucha (MS 13) and 18th Street gangs. The men share their journeys of self-discovery and examine their transformations from members of violent groups, to deportees, to their current and most important role - as peacemakers.
