EVC Presents: Docs & Dialogue – New Visions
September 30 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
On September 30, EVC’s Docs & Dialogue series presents an online screening of the 2015 youth-produced documentary New Visions. In this film, youth producers from the Educational Video Center take a deeper look at the contradictory narratives of the American Dream from an immigrant perspective, following the story of one young person as he navigates the contrast between his expectations about coming to America and the harsh realities of his life in NYC. The filmmakers explore the stories of a group of workers trying to combat injustice and discrimination in their workplace, examine labor laws in the US, and directly reach out to worker’s unions. EVC Presents: Docs & Dialogue is a monthly youth-produced virtual documentary screening and dialogue series led by EVC’s young people whose lives and communities are impacted by systemic inequities.
