On Wednesday, Oct. 17, the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences will host a screening of “Brightness of Noon: The Intersect of Faith, Immigration and Refugees,” the first of a new two-part series. The event is free and open to all members of the university community.
The documentary explores the risks people of faith are willing to take to protect the human rights of those fleeing violence, and the struggles and triumphs of undocumented immigrants and refugees as they resettle in the United States.
Writer and producer of the series Debra Gonsher Vinik will attend the event. After the screening, a panel of DePaul faculty, staff and students will discuss important aspects of and questions raised by the film. A Q&A will follow the screening and discussion.
