As the United States reels over the consequences of separating parents and their children at the border, explore the lingering effects of trauma on the relationship between a mother and her son who migrated from Colombia. Almost forty years later, the experience of imprisoning a child continues to reverberate in both of their lives.

This screening is part of the Emerging Visual Anthropologists Showcase and will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers, and anthropologists Dr. Faye Ginsburg and Dr. Pegi Vail, both of the New York University Graduate Program in Culture and Media, Department of Anthropology.
