The series is sponsored by the Latin American Studies Program; departments of anthropology, English, foreign languages and literatures, geography, history, international relations and political sciences; the School of the Arts; the Environmental Sciences Program; and the Alan Lutkus International Film Series Committee. Two events are planned for Thursday, April 5:

"Globalization in Latin America and the Global Justice Movement: A Narrative Picture-Lecture" will be held at 6 p.m., 204 Newton Hall. The event will be presented by Beehive Design Collective, a grassroots activist organization headquartered in Machias, Maine. The mission of Beehive Design Collective is to build strong, functional connections between activists that use words, and those that speak in pictures, to help create more accessible, powerful campaigns for the important issues of our time. Through lectures illustrated by murals and graphic designs that Collective members create, this organization envisions a world where cultural work and popular education are not segregated from the "box" of how movements for social change speak to issues.

The documentary "El inmigrante" will be screened at 7 p.m. in 204 Newton Hall. The film, directed by: John Sneedy, David Eckenrode, John Eckenrode and Rick Carlson, was filmed in the U.S. and Mexico. Produced in 2005, it runs 90 minutes. Discussant: Edward Drachman, professor of political science and international relations. "El inmigrante" is a documentary film that examines the Mexican and American border crisis by telling the story of Eusebio de Haro, a young Mexican migrant who was shot and killed during one of his journies north. The film presents a distinct humanitarian focus in which story and character take precedent over policy and empiricism. Toward this end, "El inmigrante" examines the perspectives of a diverse cast of players in this border narrative. A cast which includes the de Haro family; the community of Brackettville, Texas (where Eusebio was shot); members of vigilante border militias in Arizona; the horseback border patrol in El Paso; and migrants en route to an uncertain future in the U.S. The film has won numerous awards at film festivals across the country. The Web site for the film is www.elinmigrantemovie.com.
