Still from THE UNAFRAID.
LOS ANGELES—THE BLUE HOUR, a monthly film series, will screen THE UNAFRAID, a feature length documentary that follows the personal lives of three DACA students in Georgia, a state that has banned them from attending their top state universities and disqualifies them from receiving in-state tuition at any other public college. Shot in an observational style over a period of four years, THE UNAFRAID documentary takes an intimate look at the lives of Alejandro, Silvia and Aldo as they navigate activism, pursuing their right to education, and fighting for the rights of their families and communities.
