Free outdoor film series to show 'Don't Tell Anyone'
Submitted by Charlene Brownson
Movies on the Grass, a free outdoor film series, offers the campus and community new films that portray current issues in a relaxed setting.
"Don't Tell Anyone" or "No Le Digas a Nadie" will show at 8 p.m. or at dust Sunday, Sept. 17, at Coffman Commons, the grass area in front of Hale Library. In case of rain, the film will show in the Town Hall of the Leadership Studies Building.
Since the age of 4, Angy Rivera has lived in the United States with a secret that threatens to upend her life: She is undocumented. Now 24 and facing an uncertain future, Rivera becomes an activist for undocumented youth with a popular advice blog and a YouTube channel. She steps out of the shadows a second time to share her story of sexual abuse, an experience all too common among undocumented women. "Don't Tell Anyone" follows Rivera's remarkable journey from poverty in rural Colombia to the front page of The New York Times, according to the film's synopsis.
