/_About the 2011 Social Justice Film Series_:/ Brought to you by the 
Center for Cultural Pluralism, the Fall 2011 Social Justice Film Series 
theme is /'(Un)covering Identities'/ and offers participants an 
educational opportunity to explore through film and subsequent discourse 
and engage issues of identity in its various forms, visible and 
invisible. Films selected for the Social Justice Film Series have two 
viewings and are generally screened up to a half hour and followed by an 
engaged discourse on the themes by the participants. To be respectful of 
your time, it is our hope that this entire educational program does not 
exceed an hour. /
