UA MAS Students Showcase 'Two Americans' Documentary (with Burritos)

Posted By on Tue, Apr 24, 2012 at 2:50 PM

"Enter the heart of an American family living in the shadows of a state that has criminalized their existence. Walk in the shoes of a public official who has won enormous political gains by incarcerating “illegals” as he stares down criminal charges of his own."

If you missed seeing the documentary Two Americans by Dan De Vivo and Valeria Fernández, during the Arizona International Film Festival, you can see it tonight, 6 p.m. at the UA Integrated Learning Center Auditorium #140. If you need a better excuse to go, burritos will be served from 5:15 to 6 p.m.

Besides the documentary, the program includes a presentation from a student panel discussing their research on the attacks against the discipline of Mexican American Studies at the Tucson Unified School District and the UA. A new issue of the student-produced publication, El Coraje, by UA-MAS 350 students, is also part of the presentation, as well as a student panel on student research on immigration and the documentary.
