7:30 PM - Rm 216 Living/Learning Commons
A brief discussion of the themes with representatives from the UVM CHapter of Amnesty International will follow the screening.
About the film: Last Chance tells the stories of five asylum seekers who flee their native countries to escape homophobic violence. They face hurdles integrating into Canada, fear deportation and anxiously await a decision that will change their lives forever.
About the Social Justice Film Series: Brought to you by the Center for Cultural
Pluralism, the Fall 2014 Social Justice Film Series theme is
"Queering Identities" and offers participants
an educational opportunity to explore through film and
subsequent the queer experience and its intersections with
other social identities. Films selected for the Social
Justice Film Series have one viewing 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 ninety minutes.
