Documentary: Cheche Lavi - Searching for Life about two Haitian immigrants

Date: 11-13-2019

Time: 06:00 PM

Location: Library Multimedia Room 101

The International Studies Program presents "Cheche Lavi," a documentary film screening. 

This moving documentary is a lyrical portrait that follows two Haitian migrants, Robens and James, who find themselves stranded at the US-Mexico border with no way forward and no one to depend on but each other.  The quiet, unexpected tenderness of their friendship shines in the eye of an incomprehensible geopolitical storm, even as the two men drift towards drastically different futures...   and a new wall rises on the horizon.  

Cheche Lavi is a phrase in Haitian Creole which means "looking for life".  

November 13th, Wednesday, at 6 pm.
