Presented by the UIC Latino Cultural Center and Detention Watch Network

“Caged Dreams” details the stories of Johannes Favi, Beatriz Batres, and Felipe Diosdado, who were previously detained in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody and suffered long-lasting trauma due to their incarceration. The goal of the film is to paint a vivid picture of the emotional experience of immigration detention and the deep impacts on a person’s mental health and their loved ones.

Join us for a short documentary screening followed by panel conversation featuring Director Johannes Favi and Antonio Gutierrez from Organized Communities Against Detention.

Light refreshments will be provided. 

Film Duration 12 min. 

When: Tuesday, March 12, 2024

Time:  12pm-1pm

Where: LCC Gallery, Lecture Center B2
