Documentary screening, featuring a Q&A with a member of the filmmaking team!

Join us in celebration of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities with this award-winning documentary screening!

Synopsis:

Most people dream of a better future. Pedro, an aspiring social worker, is no different. But as a blind, undocumented immigrant, Pedro faces political restrictions to obtain his college degree, secure a job as a health care provider, and support his family. As he finally graduates, uncertainty looms over Pedro. What starts as a journey to provide mental health for his community ultimately transforms into Pedro’s path towards his own healing.

Through experimental cinematography and sound, Unseen reimagines a cinema accessible for blind/low vision audiences, while exploring the intersections of immigration, disability, and mental health.

Run time: 88 minutes

*Film presented with open captioning and open audio description. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Conchita Hernandea Legoretta, Impact Producer for the film
