Last Tuesdays Screening: Unsettled
Hosted by JAYU
6 PM – 8:30 PM
Join JAYU for the latest addition of the Last Tuesdays Virtual Screening Series with Tom Shepard’s Unsettled.
There are 70 countries in the world where same-sex sexual activity is a crime. 6 of those countries impose the death penalty. Against this backdrop of intense homophobia, Unsettled chronicles the brave stories of four LGBTQ+ refugees who fled their home countries to America. Director Tom Shepard tracks the incredible stories of Subhi, Junior, and the couple Cheyenne and Mari, recounting their persecution in highly insightful and profoundly moving interviews. The film closely examines the struggles of finding a place in America, while serving as a bold testament to the spirit of these strong individuals. At times devastating and at times emphatically hopeful, Unsettled celebrates the lives of these refugees with a heartfelt tale of loss and the ultimate triumph of love.
This screening is closed captioned and will be immediately followed by a Q&A with Tom Shepard (director) at 7:30 PM on Facebook Live with an ASL Interpreter.
