We will WATCH the film together and then discuss it!
In the last years, mainstream Hollywood has tried to diversify the film industry, often with mixed results. In our Spring 2021 Film Series, we put Black, Indigenous, and People of Color center stage and to listen and learn from their stories. Spanning different genres, identities, and timeframes, we explore what stories matter to people of color when they are behind the lens, the pen, and the screen. Join us for screenings throughout the semester and delve into some of the most interesting, provocative, and fun films of the last 20 years!
Young Undocumented activists purposefully get themselves detained in a for-profit migrant detention center in Florida in order to expose the harsh brutality of migrant detention. Mixing documentary with re-enactment, this film blurs genres to show in full force the life of undocumented people in the United States and the bravery of young activists trying to take on the system. Join Professors Luis Romero and Randa Tawil for a discussion of migrant detention, undocumented activism, and immigration in the United States.
