Fem Flicks Film Series: MARISOL

Event Date: 
Wednesday, September 27, 2017 - 11:00
Event Location: 
Willis Library Forum

Marisol tells the story of three women who are affected by immigration in Texas. The story of Marisol, a young college age Mexican woman in north Texas, is inspired by the real life stories of young people who uncover their family secret that they are, in fact, living in the US without legal documents. Marisol is a quietly powerful film about taking meaningful social action.
