Filmmaker Anne Galisky joins UCSB's Helen Morales for a discussion of her 2014 film 14: Dred Scott, Wong Kim Ark, & Vanessa Lopez. The director explains the process of locating family members of the individuals the film focuses on, scoring the film, and developing conversations about citizenship including birthright citizenship but also recent debates about the status of people who are already citizens. Subjects of the talk range from the risks of being publicly undocumented, the rhetorical significance of families and children in political arguments, and her own personal family's story of immigration. By way of encouraging future activist documentarians, she stresses the importance of forming trusting relationships with the subjects of her documentaries.
