Film: Hasta la Raiz (Down to the Root)

September 15
4:00 PM — 7:00 PM
199 Chambers St., Room N-452

The Ethnic Studies Center and the Modern Languages Department present

Hasta la Raiz (Down to the Root)

 

This 2017 documentary explores issues faced by the Dominicans of Haitian descent affected by court ruling 168-13 that removed their citizenship.

Discussion and Q&A after the film
The screening will be followed by a question and answer panel with BMCC professors Daly Guilamo and Sophie Marinez. They and John Jay College's Eddie Paulino will discuss the connection between the massacre of thousands of Haitians living in the Dominican Republic in 1937 and its sequel in the 21st century--the infamous court ruling 168-13.

For more information contact Daly Guilamo at dguilamo@bmcc.cuny.edu or Sophie Marinez at smarinez@bmcc.cuny.edu.
