MSU Latinx Film Festival

MSU Latinx Film Festival

Date & Time: Feb 22, 2019, 4:30 PM - 7:30 PM
Location: MSU RCAH Theater (Snyder-Phillips Hall)

In the wake of the historic government shutdown, LxFF is proud to bring two highly acclaimed documentaries on the U.S.-México border to the greater Lansing area for their mid-Michigan premieres: Through the Repellent Fence (MoMA/SXSW) and The Wall (2018 Pulitzer Prize). We’re also happy to present two short films on the sanctuary movement by emerging filmmakers: Dangerous Times | Rebellious Responses and Walking for Ded.

 

The U.S.-México border and the sanctuary movement in Michigan. Two topics inextricably linked by immigration policies, state violence and imperialism, but also through attempts to resist xenophobia, contest coercion and transform the way we think about land, migration and human dignity. Two topics with shared themes: ONE NIGHT ONLY!
