AYITI IMAGES Presents the Screening of DeportedWednesday, October 1, 6:30pm-9:30pm – FIU Modesto A. Maidique Campus, GC140 Room, 11200 SW 8th St., Miami

Ayiti Images; A Haitian Traveling Films series brings provocative films about the Haitian experience and created by Haitian and Haitian-American filmmakers to Florida. The award-winning documentary, Deported opens the series with its first screening at FIU. Through a series of portraits, Deported gives voice to convicted and sentenced offenders who at the end of their prison sentence in North America, are deported to their home country, Haiti. Back in Port-Au-Prince, a city they left as children, a new life begins for these “Americans” in an environment that can be both completely unfamiliar and hostile. Co-Director, Rachele Magloire will be available for a Q&A along with a distinguished panel of speakers to discuss the issue of Deportation. The evening will begin at 6:30 PM with a Networking Mingler. This screening is free and open to the public.
