This event is a closed 5C event for survivors of color in the Dolores Huerta Room (first floor of the Gold Student Center, PZ).
Kimberly Bautista, a Pitzer alum who majored in Media Studies, will be returning to campus on Thursday, October 19 to host a 5C closed workshop for survivors of color. This worksop will focus on the intersection of self-care and activism/advocacy.
Shortly after graduating Pitzer, Bautista
produced and directed the documentary Justice for My Sister
, which follows one Guatemalan woman during her three-year battle to hold her sister’s killer accountable. She encounters many obstacles: a police record that is missing, a judge who is accused of killing his own wife, and witnesses who are too afraid to testify. In the end, Rebeca emerges as a leader in her community with a message for others: justice is possible.
An award-winning documentary, Justice for My Sister received the HBO-NALIP Documentary Filmmaker Award, Best Documentary at the Los Angeles Latino Independent Film Festival, and the Camera Justita Award at Movies That Matter Festival in The Netherlands.
