Next Saturday: Projections: The Faces Behind the Dolls / Los Rostros Detrás de las Muñecas

PROJECTIONS_MARCH_DOLLS-01Our next Projections screening is of the documentary The Faces Behind the Dolls / Los Rostros Detrás de las Muñecasdirected by Freddy Vargas and produced and researched by Mary Ely Peña-Gratereaux—about the Dominican immigrant women who labored at the Madame Alexander Doll company in New York City. Their stories demonstrate how the world economic system shaped and transformed the lives of immigrants as they integrated themselves into the US labor market, and ultimately how globalization and its discontents drowned many of these workers’ dreams as production shipped to China when the company closed its doors. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers.
