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.
