Three documentaries will screen outside on the plaza at National Nurses United headquarters .
The art exhibition “Recognition: Labor Meets Art in Explorations of Social Justice and Identity,” will be open to the public during the screenings.
The films feature three locations where Registered Nurse Response Network (RNRN) volunteers have deployed to provide direct relief and response to humanitarian, environmental, and social injustice: Post-Hurricane Katrina New Orleans, Standing Rock, and rural Arizona. RNRN volunteers will introduce the films with stories of how RNs have intervened to provide direct care in support of social justice.
Undeterred: Border Militarization and Community Resistance
Undeterred is a documentary about community resistance in the rural border town of Arivaca, Arizona. Since NAFTA, 9/11, and the Obama and Trump administrations, border residents have been on the frontlines of the humanitarian crisis caused by escalating border enforcement. This intimate portrait shows how Arivaca residents have mobilized to provide aid to injured, oftentimes dying people traveling across the desert. Directed by Eva Lewis, an Arivaca resident and member of People Helping People in the Border Zone (PHP). Screens as part of “Recognition and Response,” National Nurses United’s fall outdoor documentary film series.
