"Asmarina" Film Screening

Still from the film 'Asmarina'

Afro-Italian queer immigration activist Medhin Paolos shares her film "Asmarina," on African and Arab undocumented immigrants in Europe, particularly the Habesha population in Milan. Medhin 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. After the film, a discussion with Medhin Paolos herself will follow.
