Letters from the Other Side: Film Screening
On Monday, November 20th, the Rapoport Center co-sponsored a free public screening of local filmmaker Heather Courtney’s critically acclaimed documentary Letters from the Other Side, a film about Mexican immigration. What made the screening so special was that the women featured in the film were finally granted Visitor Visas eight months after they were initially denied, and they were at the screening to talk with the audience in a Q&A directly following the film. The theater where the event took place was sold out, with many people sitting on the floor! Read more about the film and watch a trailer.
