Documentary & Discussion: Without Papers
This documentary film screening is part of Mia’s Global Movements series. Award-winning filmmaker Andres A. Parra presents Without Papers, a documentary that explores what it is like to be a so-called Dreamer, a young adult brought to the U.S. as a child. The film highlights the struggles of a young immigrant from Venezuela, Johana, who has lived in the U.S. for more than 20 years without papers. It was only after the introduction of DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), which aids Dreamers, that Johana was able to participate fully in American society.
Runtime: 36 mins, followed by discussion. Free.
