MARVELOUS MOVIE MONDAYS!!
guest curator: David Zlutnick
This month’s theme is “Documenting the Movements,” featuring short video covering contemporary struggles for social justice. This week’s selection is on the subject of the struggle for immigrants’ rights, and specifically the efforts of undocumented youth to push for the DREAM Act.
With President-elect Donald Trump’s promise to deport up to 3 million undocumented immigrants upon taking office, the fight to protect immigrant communities will be heating up. This short film by Joshua Davis, “Undocumented and Unafraid,” chronicles one small part of a much larger fight by undocumented students across the country to push for the passage of the DREAM Act. Obama did eventually establish protections for these students under an executive order – DACA – which is now threatened to be undone by a Trump administration.
