Eric Nelson: Immigrants and Refugees in Film

 

Expanded description

Because I’m in a long recovery from my knee replacement, I decided I need to refigure the usual structure of my class to accommodate my physical limitations. It’s very important to me to bring these films to your attention at this particular moment in our history. I hope they speak to you as they speak to me.
