Genre: Drama
Written By Marcella Goheen and Directed By Larry Moss

Using documentary footage, music and storytelling, THE MARIA PROJECT takes audiences on a road trip across America to unravel the mysterious disappearance of Maria Salazar. Through the voices of family over three generations, an unknown family history is unearthed, down to the very secret that shaped its destiny.

Called “inspiring” by the Star Tribune and “powerful and harrowing” by the City Pages in Minneapolis, this incredible story of survival arrives at 59E59 Theaters after traveling across the US, playing in Los Angeles, Minnesota, Iowa, South Dakota and Chicago.
