The Round Rock Higher Education Center presents the 2006 documentary Letters from the Other Side followed by a discussion with the film's director from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday, March 1 at the Higher Education Center's Avery Theatre. 

This documentary interweaves video letters carried across the U.S.-Mexico border with the intimate stories of women left behind in post-NAFTA Mexico.  By focusing on a side of the immigration story rarely told by the media or touched upon in our national debate, this film paints a complex portrait of families torn apart by economics and communities dying. 

Following the movie, the director, Heather Courtney, will discuss her experience and answer questions from the audience.

 
For more information, please contact Dawn Bayardo, (512) 716-4023.
