SCREENING: THE UNAFRAID
THE UNAFRAID is a feature length documentary that follows the personal lives of three DACA students in Georgia, a state that has banned them from attending their top state universities and disqualifies them from receiving in-state tuition at any other public college. Shot in an observational style over a period of four years, this film takes an intimate look at the lives of Alejandro, Silvia and Aldo as they navigate activism, pursuing their right to education, and fighting for the rights of their families and communities.
THE UNAFRAID shows us what it means to grow up both American and undocumented in the United States.
This is a free event.
ARTIST TOUR WITH HARVEY BREVERMAN: JEWISH SIGNS AND SYMBOLS IN PICTORIAL IMAGES
Join artist Harvey Breverman for a tour of THE CONTRADICTIONS OF BEING: COMPOSITE WORKS BY HARVEY BREVERMAN.
“As we view several selective groups of paintings and mixed media drawings that are amalgams of seductive, penetrating, rhythmic “melanges” of colliding elements, both sacred and secular, I will share with you the underlying motivations for each open-ended series.” Harvey Breverman
Free with gallery admission.
