Learn more about the film at http://www.theothersideofimmigration.com/

Political scientist and filmmaker Roy Germano will be here at UT to present and discuss his award-winning documentary The Other Side of Immigration. Based on over 700 interviews in Mexican towns where about half the population has left to work in the United States, this film asks why so many Mexicans come to the U.S. and what happens to the families and communities they leave behind. Through an approach that is both subtle and thought-provoking, Germano provides a perspective on undocumented immigration rarely witnessed by American eyes, challenging audiences to imagine more creative binational solutions to the immigration issue. This film is winner of the American Library Association Notable Video Award and Official Selection at dozens of universities, film festivals, high schools, public libraries, health clinics, conferences, and public institutions.

About the filmmaker: Roy Germano teaches in the Program on International Relations at New York University. He holds a Ph.D. in Government from the University of Texas at Austin and an M.A. in International Relations from the University of Chicago. Roy made The Other Side of Immigration while conducting a face-to-face survey of 700 families in rural Mexico for his doctoral research. He has conducted extensive fieldwork throughout Mexico and Central America with funding from the National Science Foundation and his research has appeared in journals like Perspectives on Politics, Latino Studies, and Electoral Studies. Roy also wrote, directed, and hosted the Vice News documentary series Immigrant America, which examines topics like deportation, racial profiling, and child migration. He has provided analysis on immigration for MSNBC, Fox News, NPR, WNYC, Vice News, Univision, and Telemundo.
