Friday, September 18 – PBS’ POV (Point of View)

Angy Rivera grew up in the United States with a secret that threatened to upend her life: She was undocumented. At 24, Rivera became an activist for undocumented youth with a popular advice blog and a YouTube channel boasting more than 27,000 views. Don’t Tell Anyone (No Le Digas a Nadie), premiering on PBS’s POV series on Sept. 21st, tells her story.

You’ll also see a selection of short indie docs, including Paraíso, about three immigrant window cleaners who risk their lives every day rappelling down some of Chicago’s tallest skyscrapers, as well as animated shorts from renowned oral history project, StoryCorps.
