Join the Middle East Studies Program for the first-time Madison Screening of 8 Borders, 8 Days with a post-film discussion with the director, Amanda Bailly.
In 8 Borders, 8 Days, a single mother reveals the consequences of closing America’s doors to families fleeing war. With no answer to her application for resettlement in the US, and every other path to safety closed off, a smuggler’s raft to Europe was the only way out. 8 Borders, 8 Days is her story; the intimate details of why a fiercely-determined mother is willing to risk her children’s lives for a better future and an immersive experience of their eight-day journey to safety.
