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.
