A Century of Immigration on Film

Saturday, March 9th, 7:30pm.

Three Trembling Cities (Arthur Vince, 2017) is an intimate portrait of the inner lives and daily struggles of the immigrants who make NYC’s heart tremble with hope. The first season follows two fictional circles of immigrants as they juggle jobs, relationships, immigration issues, family expectations, and their own dreams. Their stories are intercut with non-fiction interviews with immigrants who’ve faced parallel issues. In The Immigrant (1917), Charlie Chaplin follows a pair of immigrants to America and chronicles the very tangible problems they face.

Conflict & Crisis in Myanmar

Saturday, February 9,
5-6:30pm

Join Interference Archive for a rare visit by someone deeply involved in the urgent struggle to for free speech and peaceful coexistence in South East Asia. Decades of Military domination are coming to an end but despite the Burmese government coming under partial civilian control under Aung San Suu Kyi, the space for civil society continues to shrink, along with its ability to manage ethnic & religious diversity. As is well-known, Burmese journalists are increasingly arrested on trumped up charges. The promise of democracy is fading & the international community appears either hapless or complicit in the persecution of Rohingya and other minorities, well known around the world, but largely denied in Myanmar (Burma) itself.
