Award-winning director Kurt Orderson and co-producer Najma Nuriddin will participate in a panel discussion and Q&A along with Daniel Pasciuti (Georgia State), Alessandro Angelini (JHU Anthropology) and Ricardo Jacobs (JHU Sociology) following a screening of “Not in Our Neighborhood” (2018).– a documentary directed by Kurt Orderson. The documentary cohesively facilitates an international dialogue on gentrification and spatial apartheid by exploring the parallels among the current urban environments in three seemingly disparate cities: São Paulo, Cape Town, and New York.
The event is sponsored by the Arrighi Center for Global Studies and co-sponsored by the Billie Holiday Project for Liberation Arts., the Program in Latin American Studies; and the Program in Racism, Immigration and Citizenship.
The film screening will be preceded by a light dinner reception at 5 pm outside 110 Hodson Hall. The film screening will begin at 6 pm.
