HUMAN RIGHTS and HUMAN WRONGS

 

"Beneath the Blindfold" 

With a gentle yet insistent voice, this film tells the stories of four torture survivors from around the globe who are now among the more than 500,000 survivors who live in the U.S. It is the first documentary to fully look at the lifelong impact of torture on the physical and psychological health of survivors. We follow them through the daunting steps of building new lives, careers, and relationships.

"Don’t Tell Anyone" 

Since the age of 4, Angy Rivera has lived in the United States with a secret that threatens to upend her life: She is undocumented. Angy arrived with her mother, fleeing violence, poverty, and civil war in their native Colombia. For 20 years they live in the shadows, struggling to stay afloat financially and avoid deportation while battling a complex and inequitable immigration system.  Now 24, Rivera becomes an activist for undocumented youth with a popular advice blog "Ask Angy" and a YouTube channel boasting more than 27,000 views.
