UNDOCUMENTED

DESCRIPTION

UNDOCUMENTED (United States, 2016, 72 minutes) is a film based on the true story of Dr. Harold Fernandez, one of the top cardiac surgeons in the New York metropolitan area. His story is frightening, heart-breaking, inspirational and ultimately triumphant.

Born and raised in what was the drug and murder capital of the world, Medellin, Colombia. Dr. Fernandez's parents fled violence with the dream that all immigrants hold: to make a better life in a new land. Harold faced years of separation from his parents as a young boy, grave danger on the open seas, and hardship, fear, bullying and bigotry in America. As he and his family lived "in the shadows" as undocumented immigrants, Harold was determined to achieve The American Dream. Through hard work, perseverance and the support of compassionate people, Harold Fernandez and his family became legal citizens of the US, with Harold graduating from Princeton University and Harvard Medical School. His story is not a typical one yet is holds out hope for millions of immigrants who have come - and have yet to come - to the land of their dreams.

Dr. Fernandez will be selling and signing his book, Undocumented. All proceeds are donated to the DREAMERS.

The film will be followed by a talkback with Dr. Fernandez and filmmakers Patricia Shih (Executive Producer & Director) and Greg Blank (Associate Producer).

After the program, please join us across the street at the Port Washington Public Library for the opening reception of local artist Jose Flores' exhibit. Reception is 3-5 PM. Mr. Flores will give a brief talk.

Co-presented with the Port Washington Public Library in recognition of Hispanic Heritage Month.

 

Free admission to all Conversations from Main Street programs is made possible by underwriting from the Angela & Scott Jaggar Foundation
