Speaker: Christine Kovic, PhD, Assistant Professor of Anthropology, UHCL HSH

Who Is Dayani Cristal succeeds in reminding us that complex human stories lurk behind each immigrant's journey. This film also provides very good insight into the economic and social background of immigrants and why they choose to come to the US. Barnal and director Marc Silver argue their case forcefully without ever dipping into the polemic

Stand Clear of the Closing Doors

Trailer (Youtube)

Sat, Sep 27, 7:00 pm, SSCB Lecture
Free Admission
Speakers:

Unassuming yet irrevocably absorbing, Stand Clear of the Closing Doors uses a refreshing perspective to explore universal themes. This film follows a Mexican boy with Asperger’s Syndrome who runs away from his undocumented family and gets lost in the New York City subway system. The movie captures the complicated mixture of loneliness, exhilaration, fear and curiosity of subway travel, which even in the quietest of times can be a hallucinatory experience that seeps deep into your consciousness. Stephen Holden of The New York Times calls Stand Clear of the Closing Doors, “"Wonderfully witty and understated...A small miracle of a film."
