For the fall of 2018, INDOCUMENTALES is proud to present two films that focus on immigrant experiences in New York City:
David Riker’s critically-acclaimed film La Ciudad (1998) on November 15th, followed by Jim McKay’s most recent feature En El Séptimo Día (2018) on November 27th.
Twenty years between their releases, the films portray experiences of Latin American migrants in New York. The series is free and open to the public. Screenings, discussions and receptions bring together filmmakers, scholars, activists, policy makers, and community representatives concerned with the fortification of immigrant rights.
