Join us for a free public screening of IN THE SHADOW OF BORDERS (2015, 37 minutes)

https://www.cinemapolitica.org/film/shadow-borders

Halifax Central Library, Room 301

Is Canada the welcoming country for migrants it likes to call itself? IN THE SHADOW OF BORDERS challenges this myth and, through personal stories of detention, denial of essential services, labour exploitation and deportation, exposes how precarious are the lives of those without status. By connecting histories—of indigenous sovereignty, of Canada’s role in displacement, of its discriminatory policies—this documentary portrays grassroots resistance to xenophobic governmental practices and the struggle of migrants for freedom of movement.

Admission is always free and films are all open to the public. Followed by moderated discusssion.

The Radical Imagination Project, in partnership with the Cinema Politica Network and the Halifax Public Libraries is pleased to bring you this series of documentary films to stir the soul and evoke the struggle for a better society.
