About the CALA film series:
As the U.S. presidential election rapidly approaches, this series focuses on the state of democracy and democratic values around the globe. Through four powerful international films, we examine the critical importance of individual and collective political engagement across various issues. We consider how shifting the boundaries of our democracies can allow for the inclusion of a greater array of voices. And we remind ourselves that liberty can never be taken for granted.
With RSVP, this event is free of charge. If you would like to attend, please register here. As space at Deutsches Haus at NYU is limited, please arrive ten minutes prior to the event. Thank you!
