With deepest respect,


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.
