You can discover a lot about a place by examining its culinary offerings. In Arlington, for example, the ease with which one can find a tasty El Salvadoran treat called a pupusa is indicative of the county’s large and active Salvadoran population. Many of these residents hail from the same village — Intipuca, the subject of a new photography exhibit and film at the Rosslyn Spectrum Gallery (1611 North Kent St.). Both the images in “KM 164: 40 Anos Despues” and footage in “Intipuca: 40 Anos de Emigration” revisit the community four decades after its residents began to flock to the U.S. en masse. Catch a free screening of the film tonight at 7:30, then stay for a discussion with curator Hugo Salinas and photographer Mario Quiroz.
