Papers: Stories of Undocumented Youth

A new film is coming to town! "Papers" tells the story of undocumented youth and the challenges they face as they turn 18 without legal status. It will be playing at the E Street Cinema in Washington, DC on March 2nd, 3rd, and 4th.

65,000 undocumented students graduate every year from high school without “papers” and the door to their future slams shut. It is against the law to work or drive. It is difficult, if not impossible in some states, to attend college. Currently, there is no path to citizenship for these young people.

Graham Street Productions produced this film in collaboration with the youth who want to tell their stories as well as community organizations around the country who are working to change immigration policy on behalf of these young people.

Screenings at the E Street Cinema start at 7:00 pm and are open to the public. Tickets are $10 each and you can buy them here.

Not in DC? Don't despair! You can host your own screening of "Papers"! Click here for details.
