Indivisible Documentary Screening, hosted by HBC and Student Life Office

Have you ever wondered what it is like to live, work, and go to school in the U.S. as an undocumented student? Want to learn how you can be an ally to immigrants and undocumented people living in the U.S.? Or are you simply interested in learning about the fears and hopes of undocumented people?

Come hear the stories of the people at the heart of our nation’s immigration debate. The event will kick off with a special screening of Indivisible, an award-winning documentary film about three undocumented students in the U.S.

The screening will be followed by a discussion with the Director and one of the protagonist of the film, Renata Teodoro. Renata is a Boston-based Dreamer and immigrant rights activist, who was brought to the U.S. from Brazil by her mother when she was six years old. At age 18, immigration officials raided her family’s home, detaining her brother and promising to return for her mother. Within two years, her family had returned to Brazil to avoid that promise of deportation. Renata stayed in Boston, is now 29 and still undocumented. When filming began, she had not seen her mother in more than six years.

Please RSVP so we ensure enough food and refreshments for everyone, thank you!

Film Screening: 5:00PM – 6:15PM
Discussion with Director and protagonist: 6:15PM - 7:00PM
