Screening + Q&A: Alex Rivera

Sleep Dealer is a Sundance award-winning science-fiction film that carries embedded in it profound political and economic critiques.  It’s the perfect conversation-starter for discussions about issues as diverse as labor and immigration, technology and ethics, globalization and the environment.

Engineering the Border: Imagining America is an hour-long multi-media presentation that explores the ways in which, during the past one hundred years, technologies have evolved and been deployed to ‘grow’ the border, transforming it from a line in the sand to a vast matrix that now blankets the entire country.  As a new techno-legal web of border enforcement has emerged, so have new forms of resistance to it.

This Tuesday, February 16th, the film and presentation will be screening in Rose Hills Theater at Pomona College. Join us to watch these works and get to talk to the artist behind them!
