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 issues
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.
