Papers is an exciting new documentary that focuses on the unique challenges that approximately 65,000 undocumented youth graduating from high school every year in the U.S. face as they turn 18. Without the legal status necessary to secure their future in the United States, many of these youths are at risk to be exiled from the only country many of them have ever known as home. The film is produced by Graham Street Productions, in conjunction with Film Action Oregon and is premiering tonight at the E-Street Cinema in Washington, DC.
I’ll be there tonight, and I hope some of you can also make it!
“Papers” will also be shown at the E-Street Cinema from March 2-4 at 7 pm. To find a listing of a screening in your city, click here. To get more information about the documentary, join the Facebook group, befriend them on MySpace, or follow them on Twitter.
