In a time when refugee populations are exploding around the world and the plight of migrants on our southern border remains one of the biggest issues in American election year politics, how are migrants and refugees, particularly children, treated in film? Stephanie Hemelryk Donald, whose work has focused on international justice, arts and migration in film, will lead a discussion that will include screenings of award-winning film work by RTF alumni Chelsea Hernandez, from her documentary on immigrant labor in Texas, and Amy Bench, in her powerful animated short about a young girl abducted as she tried to enter the United States.
