Durham Academy will host a screening of the film 120 Days, which follows the story of a family of undocumented immigrants living in North Carolina, on Thursday, Sept. 29, at 7 p.m. in Kenan Auditorium. Following the screening will be a Q&A with the documentary’s director, Ted Roach. The event is free and open to the public.
120 Days takes an intimate look at members of the Cortes family, who have been living and working in the U.S. illegally for more than 12 years. The film documents the last official four months in the United States for the family’s father, Miguel Cortes, after a judge grants him “120 days” to get his affairs in order before leaving his wife and two daughters in the U.S. and returning to Mexico.
The screening is cohosted by Uniting NC, and the first 20 people to arrive will receive a free “N.C. is Home” T-shirt. Kenan Auditorium is located on DA's Upper School campus: 3601 Ridge Road, Durham.
