Ascension Outreach and Resistance Cinema present monthly films at 7:00pm in the Parish House of The Church of the Ascension, 12 West 11th Street, usually on the first Tuesday. On Tuesday, October 3, 2017 we present From One Mistake: A New Film on Immigration Reform, along with Hendel Leiva, the filmmaker. Mr. Leiva will join us for a discussion about his first documentary film which explores many sides of the immigration issue and a journey to self-awareness, empowerment and action in the midst of a hostile political environment. Screenings are free and donations are accepted.
On Sunday, October 15th at 12:30pm an Ascension Forum will focus on immigration and sanctuary in a conversation with Marco Saavedra, a 27 year old undocumented writer, painter and immigration activist. Here is a link to a flyer for that event.
