*Una Escuela Llamada América*: Documentary Screening & Discussion
To continue creating awareness and opening discussion spaces to consider forced displacement and the challenges it involves for the education sector the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies and the Education Equity in a Global Society RIW are co-hosting a documentary screening of Una Escuela llamada América.

This documentary narrates the experiences of Joaquín, Deyna, Ricardo and Dilan, four children that migrated from different Latin-American countries to Arica, Chile. They attend the same public school–one with high enrollment of immigrant students– and share their experiences around migrating and growing up in Chile, uncovering the complexities of migration, the challenges and obstacles they have faced, as well as the hopes and opportunities that have opened up to them upon resettlement. The film is in Spanish, and will feature English subtitles.

Please join us for this documentary screening, which will be followed by a discussion with one of the documentary producers, Pablo Mardones, and the Education in Emergencies Specialist from the Norwegian Refugee Council, Henry Renna.

Pablo Mardones is a researcher and professor at the Universidad de Buenos Aires (UBA) and the Universidad de Tarapacá (UTA). He is a photographer and documentary maker (CFP-SICA), and holds a PhD in social anthropology and a master’s degree in international migration politics from the Universidad de Buenos Aires (UBA). He is the director of Alpaca, a production company specialized in ethnographic photography and documentaries.

Henry Renna brings vast experience on the impact of migration on the educational experiences of youth and children in Latin America. Henry is political scientist, master in complex thought and PhD student in social science. Currently, he is working as education cluster coordinator in Venezuela with UNICEF, previously was part of the Rapid Response Team with NORCAP in Bangladesh and Colombia and also worked as specialist in emergencies and lifelong learning in UNESCO’s Regional Bureau of Education supporting different countries in Latin America and the Caribbean.
