The Other Side of Immigration
- Thursday, August 23
- 12:00 noon
- ACB 120
Based on over 700 interviews in rural Mexican towns where about half the population has left to work in the United States, The Other Side of Immigration asks why so many Mexicans come to the U.S. and what happens to the families and communities they leave behind. Through an approach that is both subtle and thought-provoking, filmmaker Roy Germano provides a perspective on undocumented immigration rarely witnessed by American eyes, challenging audiences to imagine more creative and effective solutions to the problem.
Roy Germano holds a Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of Texas at Austin. He has done extensive research in the Mexican countryside with support from the National Science Foundation. This is his first film.
Attendees are welcome to bring their own lunch. Free snacks will be provided!
