About the Social Justice Film Series: Brought to you by the Center for Cultural Pluralism, the Spring 2015 Social Justice Film Series theme is "Internationalizing Social Justice" and offers participants an educational opportunity to explore through film and subsequent discourse isses related to social justice and diversity through a transnational lens. Participants will examine and deconstruct the boundary between domestic and international views on identity and justice. 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.
