NYC Events of Interest

This page will show events hosted by both LPE NYC and partnership organizations that may be of interest to the LPE NYC community. You can submit your event to be posted on this page by completing this form.

September 22 – October 5: Film Forum has been kind enough to offer a discount code for 2 tickets for a film they think would be of interest to members of LPE NYC: THE TRIAL (EL JUICIO) is a new documentary by Argentinean director Ulises de la Orden and is edited entirely from archival footage of the historic 1985 Trial of the Juntas. The defense testifies that their “dirty war” was a response to subversives and leftist terror. The chief prosecutor legendarily ends his closing argument: “¡Nunca mas!” The director will be appearing in person for a Q&A on Friday and Saturday of the opening weekend.

To purchase discounted tickets, select the screening you would like to go to and enter “LPE” as the promo code and a $4 discount per ticket will be applied at checkout.
