||Join us for a free screening of the documentary Una Vida, Dos Países, to be followed by a presentation and discussion with director Dr. Tatyana Kleyn.
In the last five years one million Mexicans residing in the US have returned to Mexico, including children and youth who were born or raised in the US. Una Vida, Dos Países presents the stories of these transborder youth, highlighting their experiences living between two countries, cultures, languages and education systems, and exploring their parents’ decisions to return to their home country after living undocumented in the US. The 30-minute film is multilingual in Spanish, English, and Zapotec with subtitles throughout. Also available is an accompanying curriculum for secondary schools in the US and Mexico, as well as a guide for teachers of transborder students in Mexico.
Tatyana (Ed.D., Teachers College, Columbia University) is an Associate Professor in the Programs in Bilingual Education and TESOL at The City College of New York (CCNY). During the 2014-15 she was President of the New York State Association for Bilingual Education and a Fulbright scholar in Oaxaca, Mexico. At CCNY she is the faculty advisor of the college’s DREAM Team (a student club of undocumented students and their allies).
