The Center for Black Diaspora will be screening "Stateless,“ a film by my colleague Scott Erlinder. The film will be followed by a discussion.
This is part of the year-long theme: "Migration and Citizenship: Issues and Debates.”
On Wednesday, February 12, 2014 2:30 - 4:30 pm as part of the series, "Stateless" will be screened. Stateless is a film on Rwandan refugees and the United Nations Hight Commission for Refugees. The film has been given a case number (essentially a legal argument) by the UN and has now been accepted in 4 festivals - 2 of them international.
The event will be held on the Lincoln Park campus, in the Dorothy Day Room (400) John Richardson Library.
Update: Video is available online here.
At Sundance this year, a low budget independent film, Safety Not Guaranteed, starring Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation), Jake Johnson (New Girl), and Mark Duplass (The League, etc.) took the festival by storm, garnering multiple standing ovations, winning the Waldo Salt Award (for Best Screenplay) and selling to the distributor Film District. Film District is planning a major national theatrical release for June 8th, but we've managed to convince them to allow us a DePaul-Exclusive screening with a special guest on the night of Friday, May 11th.
This event is exclusively for DePaul Students and or Faculty. Please come. (First come, first seated).
