The Unafraid

NEW DOCS

Banned by the state from attending Georgia’s top five public universities and unable to qualify for in-state tuition at other public colleges, DACA students Alejandro, Silvia, and Aldo unite through their activist work with an immigrants’ rights group. President Trump’s 2016 campaign rhetoric simmers in the background of these gripping and vital personal stories, filmed in vérité style over nearly four years. The emotional stress of teenage life is taxing on its own, but the determined students are committed to earning their college degrees and continue to protest the unjust policies that constrain them. Amid constant threat of deportation, and of losing their DACA status and access to education, the three experience their own struggles.  KR
