Students United for Immigrant Equality at UNC Chapel Hill invites you to attend the following FREE film screening and a post-screening discussion with the film’s Director:

La Vida No Es Facil (Life Isn’t Easy) on Tuesday, January 29 at 7:00PM at the FedEx Global Education Center, room 1005. (301 Pittsboro St., Chapel Hill.) Maurice M. Martinez (USA, 2006) 60 min.

This documentary examines the issue of the ineligibility of undocumented immigrants for in-state tuition at North Carolina’s public universities and how this situation affects the lives of college-aged Latino students. Director Maurice M. Martinez examines this controversial topic through the stories of three such students who were born to poor farm workers in Mexico. They have spent much of their lives in the U.S. and are struggling to find the financial resources to attend college. Other topics covered include misconceptions of the Latino community, the conditions of agricultural labor and the impact of Latinos on the economy. English and Spanish with subtitles.

This screening is part of a new state-wide campaign, Let’s Learn NC, to support in-state tuition for undocumented students. Hope you can join us!
