The latest fall semester of Fem Flicks will kick off on Tuesday, September 18, with a free screening of Rubí: A DACA Dreamer in Trump's America in Room 250H of Willis Library.
The director, Carolyn Brown, will be in attendance for a Q&A session after the screening. Here is a summary of the film from her website:
Rubí: A DACA Dreamer in Trump's America tells the story of how the Trump presidency’s anti-immigrant stance has imperiled the lives and aspirations of more than 800,000 young adults now registered under DACA. Through revealing interviews, 22-year old Rubí and her parents recount their family’s harrowing journey to the United States and their subsequent struggles to survive and succeed. Rubí graduates from college and begins a promising career — just as DACA is rescinded.
The event is a lunch-time screening and free pizza will be provided. However, viewers are welcome to bring their lunches as well.
The Fem Flicks Film Series is a joint effort of the UNT Women’s Studies Program, the UNT Multicultural Center and the UNT Media Library. A guest lecturer will accompany select events.
