Crossing Over Film Screening

Sponsors: Women and Gender Studies; Department of Philosophy; S-CAR; New Century College, African and African American Studies, Sociology and Anthropology Department

Women and Gender Studies

September 17, 2015, 4:30 PM to 7:00 PM
Johnson Center, Cinema

“Crossing Over” documents the sacrifices and triumphs of three transgender women who fled persecution in Mexico to seek asylum in the United States. Directed by Isabel Castro and produced by Katrina Sorrentino, the film follows Abigail, who choreographs quinceañaras to put herself through community college; Brenda, an HIV activist and community leader; and Francis, who works as a housekeeper to help support herself and her mother back in Mexico as she prepares for her immigration hearing. From violence and discrimination to living with HIV, the film highlights the challenges faced by people living in the shadows and shows that for transgender immigrants living at the intersection of being transgender and being undocumented, their fight for survival isn’t over when they cross the border. A panel discussion will follow the event.
