April 25, 2019


The Appreciating Diversity Film Series will present an evening of free short documentary films that include P.O.V.'s 4.1 Miles, which follows the journey of coast guard Kyriakos Papadopoulos as he is caught in the middle of the refugee crisis. Despite limited resources, the captain and his crew attempt to save thousands of migrants from drowning in the Aegean Sea. The film will be followed by a discussion featuring Michael Fox, a documentary film instructor and film critic at Oakland magazine, who will talk about how effective stories are told through documentary films.
