Don’t Tell Anyone
A Film by director Mikaela Shwer
Q&A with subject, Angy Rivera
Presented by: Arlington International Film Festival
Co-Sponsored by: Emerson College
Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition
The Arlington International Film Festival is honored to partner with community and immigration leaders to bring DON’T TELL ANYONE to Boston, a film that encourages a shift in our culture in shaping how people talk about immigration and immigration reform and what that means not only for Boston but our country at-large.
Synopsis: In a community where silence is seen as necessary for survival, immigrant activist Angy Rivera joins a generation of Dreamers ready to push for change in the only home she’s ever known — the United States. Hers is the quintessential American success story: Angy is the author of the country’s first and only advice column for undocumented youth, and her YouTube channel boasts over 27,000 views as she comes out of the shadows to inspire her peers.
