AAFF PARTNERING WITH THE U OF M LATINA/O STUDIES PROGRAM TO PRESENT "ABRAZOS"

March 16, 2015

 

The Ann Arbor Film Festival and the University of Michigan Latino/a Studies Program and Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies are pleased to present the film ABRAZOS by Luis Argueta. Luis will be present for a discussion about the film.

 

ABRAZOS narrates the transformational journey of a group of U.S. citizen children who travel from Minnesota to Guatemala to meet their grandparents for the first time.

There are 4.5 million other U.S. citizen children who, like them, have at least one undocumented parent and are part of mixed-status families.

 

Even though they are entitled to the same rights and freedoms as all Americans, many of these children are growing up with the constant fear of separation from their parents. In addition, never having met their grandparents or other family members, they don’t have a clear sense of who they are and their heritage. All of these things negatively impact their welfare and that of society.
