Movie Presentation: Essential Arrival

Join local film maker, Arifa Javed, for a special showing of her documentary Essential Arrival

Immigration is a hot-button political issue in America these days, but, unsurprisingly, that contentious, narrow debate tells only part of the story. This film seeks to broaden the immigration conversation by turning attention to Indian immigrants, often deemed a 'model minority' for their focus on higher education and their rapid collective progression up the economic ladder. Given the unique demands of America's new-age, hi-tech economy going forward, Indian immigrants, who hold disproportionate numbers of degrees in science and technology fields, stand to be among the primary driving forces of American progress in the 21st century. In playing that role, this diverse group follows in a grand tradition that should be familiar to all Americans, evoking cultural pluralism, the immigrant experience and the American Dream.

The president of Planned Parenthood recounts her life as an activist.For decades, Richards has been at the forefront of anti-war, civil rights, labor, and women's issues; as she demonstrates, activism and the desire to work for the common good run in her family. Her father was a labor attorney and environmentalist, and her mother, Ann Richards, was a fierce fighter for women's rights who became governor of Texas. 

According to mental health therapist and social justice activist Storm (cofounder, former executive director, Home Alive), most people don't have the tools they need to create and articulate effective boundaries, nor do they know how to enforce the boundaries they do set. Storm emphasizes the nature of boundary setting, particularly among vulnerable groups such as people of color, immigrants, the LGBTQ community, and women, defining along the way topics of power and privilege and the connections between individual and community safety.

America is more polarized than ever. Whether the issue is Donald Trump, healthcare, abortion, gun control, breastfeeding, or even DC vs Marvel, it feels like you can't voice an opinion without ruffling someone's feathers. In today's digital age, it's easier than ever to build walls around yourself. You fill up your Twitter feed with voices that are angry about the same issues and believe as you believe. Before long, you're isolated in your own personalized echo chamber. And if you ever encounter someone outside of your bubble, you don't understand how the arguments that resonate so well with your peers can't get through to anyone else. In a time when every conversation quickly becomes a battlefield, it's up to us to learn how to talk to each other again.

After clinching the American League pennant on September 17, 1968, the Detroit Tigers won the World Series on October 10, 1968 after defeating the heavily favored St. Louis Cardinals in seven games. Relive those exciting days by reading - and watching - all about it, as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of that historic upset. And Go Get 'em Tigers!
