We Dream In Black’s Black Immigrant Film Series: Artside & the Endless Revolution
Film Screening & Panel Discussion
Thursday Feb 24, 7 – 9 ET
Interpretation will be provided in Spanish, Haitian Kreyol for the panel discussion
We Dream In Black has partnered with NDWA’s Culture Change Team to create the Unbossed Black Immigrant Film Series. This series will amplify the demands of We Dream In Black’s Unbossed: A Black domestic worker agenda, with the goal of transforming domestic work, creating infrastructure for thriving Black communities, and disrupting harm.
We launched this series on Mayday 2021 and screened Chèche Lavi, a lyrical portrait following the journey of two Haitian migrants who become stranded at the US-Mexico border. Afterwards, we led a Q+A and panel discussion with the Haitian Bridge Alliance and the film’s producers: Rachel Cantave and Sam Ellison.
Our last film screening was of Through the Night, a cinema verité portrait of three working NY mothers whose lives intersect at a 24-hour daycare center: a mother working the overnight shift as an essential worker at a hospital; another holding down three jobs to support her family; and a woman who for over two decades has cared for the children of parents with nowhere else to turn.
Our next film screening will be of Aristide and the Endless Revolution, a documentary film that investigates the 2004 US backed coup d’etat in Haiti that led to the removal of Haiti’s first democratically elected President, Jean-Bertrand Aristide.
