A free screening of Which Way Home, a film following several unaccompanied child migrants as they journey through Mexico en route to the U.S., will screen at 7 p.m. Sept. 27 in the Liberal Arts Bldg., Rm. 136.
As the United States continues to build a wall between itself and Mexico, Which Way Home shows the personal side of immigration through the eyes of children who face harrowing dangers with enormous courage and resourcefulness as they endeavor to make it to the United States. These are stories of hope and courage, disappointment and sorrow.
The 2009 film, directed by Rebecca Cammisa, received an Academy Award nomination in 2010 for Best Feature Documentary. Others awards include the 2010 News and Documentary Emmy Award for Outstanding Informational Programming and a 2010 Imagen Award for Best Documentary on Television.
The film is sponsored by Latin American Studies and is free and open to the public. This film is in Spanish with English subtitles. Discussion of the film will follow, facilitated by program assistant and former education director at BorderLinks, Heather Craigie.
