Date and Time

6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.


  • Kirkhof Center » RM 2263


Join Rich Hiskes, Director of the Human Rights minor, for pizza and a movie followed by a discussion of the human rights issues raised in the film.

When professor Walter Vale (Richard Jenkins) travels to New York for a lecture, he's stunned to find illegal immigrants Tarek (Haaz Sleiman) and Zainab (Danai Gurira) living in his apartment. It comes out that it was rented to them by a swindler, and Vale feels sufficiently sorry for them that he invites them to stay. They get on well until Tarek is accused of jumping a subway turnstile and lands in a detention center. He risks being deported, and Vale does everything he can to prevent it.
