Film Screening: “8 Borders, 8 Days”

September 24, 2017 @ 3:00 pm CDT

8 Borders 8 Days

Presented in collaboration with Open Doors for Refugees, this film is about how a single mother shows us the consequences of closing America’s doors to families fleeing war. With no answer to her application for resettlement in the US, and every other path to safety closed off, a smuggler’s raft to Europe was the only way out. 8 Borders, 8 Days is her story; the intimate details of why a fiercely-determined mother is willing to risk her children’s lives for a better future and an immersive experience of their eight-day journey to safety.  Discussion with the director, Amanda Bailly, follows after the screening.
