CineCulture presents short films by Central Valley native Ebony Bailey

Director Ebony Bailey, who is originally from Porterville, California, will lead a post-screening discussion following her three short films at 5:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 22, at the Peters Education Center Auditorium (next to the Save-Mart Center in the Student Recreation Center Building). “Life Between Borders: Black Migrants in Mexico” explores black migration and identity, particularly after a change in immigration policy that left thousands of Haitians who sought U.S. entry stranded at the northern Mexico border.

In “Jamaica y Tamarindo: Afro Tradition in the Heart of Mexico,” four people reveal what African identity means in the context of Mexico City. “After La Nopalera” presents daily life in a village in the state of Morelos in central Mexico after the 2017 Puebla earthquake. Parking is free after 4 p.m. on Fridays in Lots P3 or P2. 

Sponsored by the Center for Creativity and the Arts, the Africana Studies Program, and the Department of Chicano and Latin American Studies
