CineCulture screens short films ‘Lumpkin, GA,’ ‘Our Country,’ ‘Invented Borders’

Nicholas Manting Brewer, “Lumpkin, GA” director; Emily Grandcolas, “Lumpkin” producer and Mayra Flores, director of “Our Country and “Invented Borders,” will join in a discussion following the screening of the three short films at 5:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 25, at the Peters Education Center Auditorium (next to the Save Mart Center in the Student Recreation Center Building).

Lumpkin, GA” tells the fate of a fading Georgia town as an undocumented immigrant, caught in legal limbo and facing deportation, contemplates his future while a private immigration prison generates millions in profits. “Our Country” is an award-winning experimental animated documentary, which captures some of the infinite nuances about immigrant families living in the United States. “Invented Borders” is an animated and live action video essay on the many facets of today’s emotional immigration debate in America.

Parking is free after 4 p.m. on Fridays with no permit necessary in Lots P3 or P2. Sponsored by the Department of Chicano and Latin American Studies
