Afro-Italian queer immigration activist Medhin Paolos will screen her film Asmarina, on African and Arab undocumented immigrants in Europe, particularly the Habesha population in Milan. Paolos is the co-founder of Rete G2, the largest immigrant rights organization in Italy working on changing the fascist legislation that is keeping thousands of Italian-born descendants of African and Arab immigrants undocumented.  Come to the new South College, Room E245.  Open to all.
