David Lynch – Stories and Photos from the Border
Sunday, September 15, 7- 8:30 p.m. at University Congregational Church, 4515 16th Ave NE
UUC’s Immigrant Justice Team, along with the University District Immigrant Justice Hub and The Church Council of Greater Seattle, invite you to join them for David Lynch: Before the Border.
Documentary photographer David Lynch has spent his long career recording the daily lives of working class laborers and refugee students in the U.S., as well as families and agricultural workers in Central America. These disparate threads have interwoven in his latest project, documenting the journey of migrant caravans seeking safety and sanctuary at the border of the United States and Mexico. David made three trips to border towns in 2018, and will have made a fourth by the time of this event.
On September 15, he’ll share photographs and stories from his travels to Central America and on the road with the caravans. His photos vividly tell the personal stories of Honduran, Salvadoran, and Guatemalan families risking everything to escape poverty and violence. This event will include a display of selected photographs. Books and prints will be available for sale as well, and David will be available to sign purchases at the end of the event.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Event is free and open to the public. Free parking in church lot on 16th Ave NE and on neighborhood streets.
