In 2012 the documentary Living Undocumented: High School, College and Beyond captured the realities of undocumented youth in New York City. At the same time the DACA program was announced and drastically changed the lives of some of the people in the film. Five years later DACA is in jeopardy. Still Living Undocumented follows three individuals from the first film to see how DACA has impacted some of their lives and left others outside of its reach. The film has an accompanying Teaching and Resource Guide, which will be available on the film’s website – LivingUndocumented.com – following the premiere.
The event is free and open to all. A reception will follow.
The film is sponsored by the US-Mexico Foundation and the Puffin Foundation.
