Una Escuela Llamad America posterTo continue creating awareness and opening discussion spaces to consider forced displacement and the challenges it involves for the education sector, we are co-hosting with the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (LACS) a documentary screening of Una Escuela llamada América.

This documentary narrates the experiences of Joaquín, Deyna, Ricardo and Dilan, four children that migrated from different Latin-American countries to Arica, Chile. They attend the same public school–one with high enrollment of immigrant students– and share their experiences around migrating and growing up in Chile, uncovering the complexities of migration, the challenges and obstacles they have faced, as well as the hopes and opportunities that have opened up to them upon resettlement. The film is in Spanish, and will feature English subtitles.

Please join us for this documentary screening, which will be followed by a discussion with one of the documentary producers, Pablo Mardones, and the Education Cluster Coordinator in Venezuela with UNICEF, Henry Renna.

If you plan to attend, please RSVP by April 5 to help determine the food order, and visit our website for more information. We look forward to seeing you!
