Essential Arrival Movie Screening

Tuesday, June 25, 2019

We recognize America as a 'nation of immigrants,' but that heritage is not just a matter of history: It continues to be built today. This film provides an in-depth look at a new featured player on America's immigration stage, Indian immigrants. For as large a role as this group will play in the coming decades, surprisingly little is known about who Indian immigrants are, what values drive them, and what they have to contribute to the contemporary American economy, striving to remain on top in a complicated globalized world. Interviewing experts from fields like law, sociology and public policy, in addition to many families of Indian immigrants in Michigan, this film paints a comprehensive, essential picture of Indian Americans. This event will include a Q&A session with the filmmaker, Dr. Arifa Javed, at the end of the screening. Dr. Javed teaches at UM-Dearborn. This screening is presented in coordination with the City of Adrian Human Relations Commission.
