#DefundHate Movie Night - 6:30 pm

Monday, September 9, 2019 - 18:30

Join friends and neighbors in the Gorge for your choice of two outstanding documentaries on immigration issues.

• The Dalles – “Undeterred” at St Paul’s Chapel, 601 Union St. Doors open at 6, film starts at 6:30, 7:45 discussion following movie. "Undeterred" is a documentary about community resistance in the rural border town of Arivaca, Arizona. Undeterred is an intimate and unique portrait of how residents in a small rural community, caught in the cross-hairs of global geo-political forces, have mobilized to demand our rights and to provide aid to injured, oft times dying people funneled across a wilderness desert. The film was made by Eva Lewis, a resident of Arivaca and long time member of People Helping People in the Border Zone (PHP). (76 minutes long)

• Hood River – “The River and the Wall” at Riverside Community Church, 317 State St. Doors open at 6, film starts at 6:30, refreshments and discussion afterward. "The River and the Wall" follows five friends on an immersive adventure through the unknown wilds of the Texas borderlands as they travel 1200 miles from El Paso to the Gulf of Mexico on horses, mountain bikes, and canoes. They set out to document the borderlands and explore the potential impacts of a border wall on the natural environment, but as the wilderness gives way to the more and more populated and heavily trafficked Lower Rio Grande Valley, they come face-to-face with the human side of the immigration debate and enter uncharted waters. (97 minutes long)
