The Other Side of Immigration

Thursday, September 30th, 7:30-9:00pm

The Other Side of Immigration is an award-winning documentary based on interviews with people in the Mexican countryside. The film explores why so many people leave small Mexican towns to work in the U.S. and what happens to the families and communities they leave behind. By understanding “the other side” of the story, we’ll begin to think about new and more creative ways the U.S. and Mexican governments can work together to solve our undocumented immigration problem. Roy Germano holds a Ph.D. in political science from the University of Texas at Austin, where he received the university’s highest honor for a graduate student. Dr. Germano has conducted extensive research in the Mexican countryside with support from the National Science Foundation. His dissertation advances a unique theory about the billions of dollars Mexican immigrants send home every year.

Gateway: An Artistic Response to Immigration presented by Art for Change, is a group art exhibition featuring all new artworks exploring immigration issues made specifically for the exhibition in a huge loft space by artists Esperanza Cortes, Aissa H.
