Film Screening: Where do I Stand?
7:30pm-9:30pm
263 Macy Hall
Where Do I Stand? is a window into the lives of seven young people who are thinking deeply about their actions during and after the violence in South Africa in May 2008, their communities, and the state of their country. They include a Rwandan refugee, a girl wrestling with the reality of foreigners in her township, a boy facing calls of cowardice by friends for not looting, and a suburban girl whose family sheltered their Malawian gardener. This violence was yet another challenge to a growing country still struggling with the legacy of apartheid—extended poverty, unemployment, and racial and economic divisions. Where Do I Stand? captures the optimistic voices of youth trying to make sense of what they experienced and how they carve out their own places in this complex and divided nation.
