Come join us for tasty Latin food and hear Roy Germano, writer and director of The Other Side of Immigration, an award winning documentary that has been called a “must-see for anyone serious about the subject” and “a beautifully shot” film that “shows the human side of immigration.” He holds a Ph.D. from the University of Texas at Austin, where he conducted extensive research in the Mexican countryside. Roy has been a recipient of the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship, the UT-Austin Michael H. Granof Outstanding Graduate Student Award, and the American Library Association Notable Video Award.

He will be giving an engaging talk about salient and timely immigration issues as the 2012 election approaches.
