What: Screening of the movie Brother Towns
When: October 25th @ 7 pm
Where: University of Central Florida, ENG 227
Orlando YAYA is proud to present a screening of “Pueblos Hermanos/Brother Towns” at UCF. This documentary examines both immigration and day labor, and as such, we anticipate a robust discussion about the intersections between the work we do with farm workers and the ongoing struggles of undocumented immigrants at large. From the Brother Towns website:
“Brother Towns/Pueblos Hermanos is a story about two communities in two different nations and how they intertwine. Ultimately, it is about how we define ourselves as nations and neighbors, our vision of community, and our efforts to connect to one another. News stories about immigrants in the United States appear on TV and in the papers daily. But we don’t have to listen to the news to know that undocumented immigrants live in nearly every community across the U.S. Thus Brother Towns is a story that also affects nearly every city and town in Mexico and Central America, and one that helps us think about not only citizenship, but what it means to be human.”
The screening will be approximately one hour long, and we will be facilitating a discussion afterwards.
Refreshments will be provided.
