GR Reads: The Movies – The Other Side of Immigration

June 24 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Event Navigation

Based on over 700 interviews in 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. After the screening of the film, Germano will lead a question and answer session about the film.
