Come to a free screening of Sansón and Me, followed by a Q&A with the director, organized by The American Constitutional Society, La Alianza, The Harvard Immigration and Refugee Clinical Program, The HLS Film Society, The HLS International Law Journal, and The Program in Criminal Justice on Tuesday, February 28 from 6:30-8:30 PM at Hilles Cinema (59 Shepard Street).
Sansón and Me was made by Mexican-American director Rodrigo Reyes, and tells the story of Sansón, an undocumented Mexican migrant who was sentenced to life in prison without parole. Rodrigo met Sansón while serving as his court interpreter, and felt that Sanson deserved better advocacy than the legal system could give him. This resulted in Rodrigo working on Sansón and Me for a decade and ultimately creating a film that intimately covers the nuances of the immigration system, the criminal legal system, and the stories living within these systems.
RSVP at bit.ly/SansonandMe. The screening will be capped at the first 50 enrollees. The RSVP form will be updated if the event is at capacity.
