The Summit County group Mountain Dreamers is partnering with the Breck Film Fest, FWD.us and the Colorado Immigrant Rights Coalition to present the documentary “The Quiet Force” for showings at the Silverthorne Pavilion and Colorado Mountain College in Breckenridge.

“The Quiet Force” is a film about the immigrant workforce in our ski communities. Through individual experiences in tourism-driven mountain communities, “The Quiet Force” explores social and economic impacts of the Latino immigrant workforce relating to national immigration policies.

The Summit County events will be a celebration of the local immigrants who help power the ski community in Summit County. The showings will be preceded by a social hour, featuring free appetizers donated from local businesses and beverages available for purchase. After the film, there will be a panel discussion featuring local Dreamers and affected community members.

The first showing and panel discussion will take place Thursday, March 7 at the Silverthorne Pavilion, 400 Blue River Parkway in Silverthorne. The social hour will take place from 5:30 p.m. with the showing taking place at 6:30, with a panel afterward. The second showing will take place at the Colorado Mountain College auditorium at 107 Denison Placer Road in Breckenridge, with the social hour at 5:30 p.m. and film at 6:30. Seats are limited, tickets are $5 and individuals are encouraged to buy tickets in advance using the Eventbrite app by searching for “Quite Force film.”
