A screening and discussion of the documentary Clinica de Migrantes, directed by Maxim Pozdorovkin (HBO’s Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer). Puentes de Salud is a volunteer-run clinic that provides free medical care to undocumented immigrants in south Philadelphia. Here, doctors and nurses work for free to serve people who would otherwise fall through the cracks. The film follows the workers and patients of Puentes through months of routine care and growth. Along the way, it puts a face to the millions of people who exist on the margins of society.
