2. SHOWING OF LUIS ARGUETA'S ABRAZOS IN ATLANTA AND OTHER POSSIBLE SCREENINGS
I will be doing a presentation of ABRAZOSthe second documentary in my immigration trilogy at Oglethorpe University in Atlanta on February 23rd. This is a good opportunity for other colleges or universities in Georgia (and Florida) to host a presentation without to incurr the extra cost of my airfare from Guatemala, given that Oglethorpe is covering that already.

With ith all the ramped up hate speech about immigrants as of late, it is critical — now more than ever — to have personal narratives about the challenges that migrants face and their many contributions to our countries. I have had an increase interest in this film about 14 US Citizen children from mixed status families that visit their grandparentes (and in some instances, their siblings) for the first time. We are also gearing up to continue the Outreach Community Engagement Tour of ABRAZOS for the Spring semester.  I would appreciate it very much if you would help us publicize the Georgia visit and the tour itself. Anyone interested please contact Nick Lomouscio (mayamedic@gmail.com) or myself and we will be glad to send them information.

Thank you for your attention and solidarity.

Happy Holidays y Abrazos,


Luis Argueta
Director
