A description of “El Norte” can and the other movies in Millennium Park can be found on the City of Chicago Events page. Here is a description of the film from there:

Brother and sister Enrique and Rosa flee persecution in their home Guatemala and journey north through Mexico and on to the United States. A work of social realism imbued with dreamlike imagery, El Norte is a lovingly rendered, heartbreaking story of hope and survival, which critic Roger Ebert called “a Grapes of Wrath for our time.” The film’s relevancy today serves to remind us of Chicago’s status as a welcoming city.
