Nepantla: Migration Narratives – The EPFC Summer Youth Filmmaking Workshop

8 Sessions Beginning July 1: Mondays and Wednesday 3 – 6 PM

Nepantla (Nahuatl word for being in-between): Migration Narratives is a free 4 week, 8 session film class for youth to explore migration narratives, especially focusing on migration to Los Angeles. We invite local youth to delve into and express these untold immigrant stories through film and video. We welcome all directly impacted by immigration, whether undocumented or documented, queer and/or trans; we have all experienced Nepantla.

This class is FREE to participating teens with all instruction, materials, equipment and field trips provided at no cost by EPFC.

The class is geared toward students ages 12-19, particularly students directly impacted by immigration policies. During the four weeks of class, students will view films relating to immigration histories and create their own short documentaries structured around guest lectures from activists and the students’ own personal and ancestral narratives. The program also includes two field trips to local social justice organizations. Tap cards with fare for the month of July will be provided.

***Students MUST be able to attend all sessions of the class. Consistent attendance and punctuality are absolutely crucial to the program. Guest lectures, scheduled field trips, and the filmmaking process are all necessary for the full educational and creative experience.***

This project is made possible with support from California Humanities, a non-profit partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Visit calhum.org.
