Armando Ibañez will discuss “Our Existence through Filmmaking.”
This presentation is about “Undocumented Tales” , a web series about a queer, undocumented, Latinx immigrant living in the states. “Undocumented Tales” breaks the stereotypes and misconceptions of immigrant and LGBTQ communities on the screen. The program aims to encourage all misrepresented communities to tell our own stories.
