Post-screening discussion with Elvira Arellano and others

This is the fourth film in a series about undocumented immigrants that is running February through June at locations around the south side. Each screening features a panel discussion. The series is sponsored by South Side Projections, Contratiempo, Center for Latin American Studies at the University of Chicago, and Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts.

Elvira (Javier Solórzano Casarin, Mexico, 2009, 70 min., DVD)
As part of a series of a country-wide airport raids in search of terrorists, Elvira Arellano, a Mexican woman working as a janitor at O’Hare International Airport, was arrested and convicted of Social Security fraud. On the date she was ordered to appear before immigration authorities, she took refuge in a Humboldt Park church where she fought to remain in the United States with her American-born son. Despite her 12-month struggle, she was ultimately deported to Mexico in 2007. Columbia College graduate Javier Solórzano Casarin’s documentary narrates the drama of this undocumented mother who has become an international symbol for undocumented workers’ rights.

The post-screening discussion will feature Arellano along with other immigration activists.
