Stateless (Michèle Stephenson | 2020 | 95 min) – original version in Spanish and Haitian Creole with English subtitles

In 1937, tens of thousands of Haitians and Dominicans of Haitian descent were exterminated by the Dominican army, on the basis of anti-black racism. Fast-forward to 2013, the Dominican Republic’s Supreme Court stripped the citizenship of anyone with Haitian parents, retroactive to 1929, rendering more than 200,000 people stateless. Director Michèle Stephenson’s new documentary follows the grassroots campaign of a young attorney named Rosa Iris, as she challenges electoral corruption and fights to protect the right to citizenship for all people.

Associate Professor at U of T Melanie Newton, and artist & filmmaker Esery Mondesir will also be in attendance for a discussion.

No RSVP required, dinner will be provided.
