‘Sin País’ @ Dreamland Theater

Tuesday, Sept. 18

Dreamland Theater
810 E. Market St.
Free; 7 p.m.

One of the most haunting images in the “Sin País” (“Without a Country”) trailer shows a chubby-cheeked toddler resting on her father’s shoulder as he carries her through an airport. She clutches a pink tiara with feathers and butterflies. The little girl’s large brown eyes gaze apathetically into the camera. Her parents are being deported. This intimate documentary, directed by Theo Rigby (who will be on hand for the viewing), follows one family’s emotional and difficult deportation journey, this after having lived in the United States for 17 years.  Dreamland Theater’s screening of the doc will be followed by a community discussion where audience members can share their own immigration stories as part of a larger project called Immigrant Nation. The Hispanic Latino Coalition, La Cámara, The Louisville Film Society and U of L sponsor this screening. —Anne Marshall
