Three Communities, One Struggle
Throughout the United States, immigration policies are transforming the communities we live in. UNDIVIDED is a 30-minute documentary film sharing the portraits of three young activists and their relationship to politics, identity and place. With sweeping landscapes and stunning imagery, the film reveals the realities that are ripping communities apart and the resilience of those working together to restore unity.
The screening will be followed by a facilitated discussion inviting audience members to participate.
The very first New York screening of the film, this event is part of a series of community screenings (including Oakland, California, Washington DC and Tucson, Arizona), providing an opportunity to gather as organizers, activists and community members to address the common threads between sometimes divided social, political and artistic movemnts.
