Screening of Forbidden: Undocumented and Queer in Rural America


Monday, April 18, 2016
5:30 am - 8:00 pm


The documentary tells the story of an immigrant rights activist, Moises Serrano, and his struggle in the pursuit of a college education while seeking to decriminalize and humanize his undocumented migrant community. One of the main goals of the film is to humanize the undocumented and shift the current narrative. This is all done through the story of Moises and his struggle as an openly undocumented, queer, Mexican immigrant living in rural North Carolina. This story takes place in a crucial time in history with the winning of the change in policy called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), which spares certain undocumented youth from deportation, and through the Supreme Court’s ruling on the unconstitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). The film seeks to educate, persuade, and hopefully move the American public to take action on these critical issues.
