Duke-UNC Rotary Peace Center Peace Film Series

December 1, 2015 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

In the desolate borderlands of the American Southwest, hundreds of undocumented immigrants die every year while attempting to cross into the United States from Mexico. In response, volunteers are caching water supplies along the migratory trails and others are imagining cell phones running geo-poetic trail-finding software promising to lead migrants to water. Through the voices of those who have crossed, those who have failed, and those who are trying to prevent more deaths, a complex picture of the immigration crisis emerges.

View the Trailer for the film here.

Following the screening of the film, we will hold a short discussion session.

The Duke-UNC Rotary Peace Center
