Film Screening: Icebox

Wednesday, April 3, 2019 - 5:00pm

Icebox 

Óscar (Anthony Gonzalez), a 12-year-old Honduran boy, is forced to flee his home and seek asylum in the United States, only to find himself trapped in the U.S. immigration system. As Óscar attempts to reach his uncle, Manuel (Omar Leyva), in Arizona, he is apprehended by Border Patrol and placed in “the icebox,” a processing center for Hispanic migrant children. Faced against a seemingly impenetrable immigration system, Óscar struggles to navigate a path to freedom, with a journalist (Genesis Rodriguez) and his uncle, himself a recent immigrant, as his only lifeline. Sponsored by Department of Romance Languages and Literatures. Cosponsored by Center for Social Concerns. 

Discussion following the film with Fr. Joe Corpora. Pizza and soda will be served.
