Film Screening: "Harvest of Empire"

This is the first of eight films in the annual SGS Summer Film Festival running from June 17th to August 26th.  This year's festival features films from around the world that focus on the topic of “Imagining Empire: A Global Retrospective” and offers a flexible lens with which to look at both historical and contemporary geopolitical and socioeconomic contexts. The films chosen truly represent the variety of ways in which empire has been cinematically interpreted and (re)imagined. 
"Harvest of Empire" takes an unflinching look at the role that U.S. economic and military interests played in triggering an unprecedented wave of migration that is transforming our nation's cultural and economic landscape.  The film is followed by a Q&A Jorge Ramón González.
