In person


When a group of people with disabilities in Bolivia unite in protest for a pension, they never imagined what was to come. Trekking the Andes in their wheelchairs, they’re forced to confront a government that tries to silence them and a society indifferent to their struggle. La Lucha is a tribute to all those who fight for change.

All Access pass holders receive complimentary entry with their pass. Please arrive at the theatre at least 15 minutes before showtime to secure your seat.
