Franco's essay "Rebozo [Man] in Nepantla: Xican@ Gender & Arts Revolution in San Anto, Tejas" was published as a chapter in the tri-lingual anthology México en sus revoluciones (Mexico In Its Revolutions), University of Toronto Press.

Sole Survivor is film that tells the complex story of four people who became sole survivors of commercial airline disasters There will be a Q&A session following the screening.

About Sole Survivor:
In the history of aviation, there have only been 14 of them: sole survivors of commercial airline disasters. Most have never spoken publicly about the loss, the guilt, the immense pressure of feeling "spared," Who, after all, could ever truly understand?

The answer is only each other. Focusing on George Lamson Jr., the only survivor of the 1985 crash of Galaxy Airlines Flight 203, Sole Survivor lets four of them share their very complex, personal stories for the first time. They relive the darkest moments of their lives—with the film's viewers and each other—in an effort to heal and overcome.
