Presented by the Whatcom Human Rights Task Force Featuring a post-screening Q&A with director Suzan Beraza. Moderated by Dr. Vernon Damani Johnson. This documentary takes place in the Dominican Republic and Haiti, two ethnically and culturally distinct countries that have been forced to share an island since colonial times. The film follows Pikilina, a Dominican-born woman of Haitian descent, and her family. Racial and political violence erupt when the country of her birth, the Dominican Republic, reverses its birthright citizenship law and she is left stateless, along with 250,000 others. With the stroke of a pen, generations of people are left without a homeland. View our complete Doctober lineup.
