Paper Children

Tuesday, May 12th 7 PM PST

FOLLOWED BY A Q&A WITH THE DIRECTOR

PAPER CHILDREN

Paper Children is the story of 4 siblings who fled gang violence in Honduras to seek safety in the US. The story begins where most immigration stories hope to end—with a family reunited and seemingly safe (just how safe they really are, remains to be seen) in Miami, Florida. The film’s approach is deeply intimate, circumventing the politics and anger that surround immigration with everyday images of love, family, healing, and resilience.

If you were moved by Fernando’s story, we encourage you to support Catholic Legal Services of Miami, who offer free legal representation to him and his siblings. Children and adults who appear in immigration courts are not entitled to a lawyer. Roughly 90% of children who do not have legal representation in immigration proceedings are denied.
