Indivisible is a powerful, feature-length documentary film about the real people at the heart of our nation’s immigration debate. Renata, Evelyn, and Antonio were young children when their parents brought them to the U.S. in search of a better life; they were teenagers when their mothers, fathers, and siblings were deported. Today, they are known as DREAMers. Indivisible takes place at a pivotal moment in their lives, as they fight for a pathway to citizenship and a chance to be reunited with their loved ones. Frustrated with the stalled legislative process, the trio take matters into their own hands and petition for a special waiver that would allow them to leave the U.S to visit their families—and legally return. With the future of immigration reform uncertain, the three do not know if their trips are a once in a lifetime experience, or the beginning of true family reunification. Following the showing of the film, a panel featuring Evelyn and other DREAMers, will be available to answer questions and provide further education about our complex Immigration system and the current movement for advocacy in terms of a Clean Dream Act following the rescinding of DACA in September by the Trump Administration. Through personal story-sharing during the panel and the showing of the film, two pillars (Cultivating Knowledge and Advocacy & Support on Campus) will be addressed. Hope CommUnity Center uses this film, as well as Hope’s Service Learning model and Popular Education methodology, to address these pillars at Rollins College.
