(Women’s Volleyball) Emerson at Emmanuel (Mass.)
Co-presented as part of the Boston Latino International Film Festival and the Power to the People series.
Directed by Chelsea Hernandez, documentary, English and Spanish with English subtitles, 74 minutes, USA (2019)
Across Texas, an unstoppable construction boom drives urban sprawl and luxury high-rises. Its dirty secret: abuse of immigrant labor. Building the American Dream captures a turning point as a movement forms to fight widespread construction industry injustices. Grieving their son, a Mexican family campaigns for a life-and-death safety ordinance. A Salvadoran electrician couple owed thousands in back pay fights for their children’s future. A bereaved son battles to protect others from his family’s preventable tragedy. A story of courage, resilience, and community, the film reveals shocking truths about the hardworking immigrants who build the American Dream, from which they are excluded.
Discussion with director Hernandez to follow. W, SJ, POC

The 7 Fingers’ electrifying and heart-stirring mix of circus, music, and dance has made them fan favorites at ArtsEmerson. That’s why we’re so excited to bring Montreal’s famed company back to Boston for their seventh engagement – and this time, we’re on a new, thrilling journey.
Speeding through, up and over the shifting landscapes of our lives, Passengers reminds us that we always have somewhere we’ve got to go, but often don’t know where we’re headed or who we’ll meet along the way. Climb aboard and take an unforgettable ride that will engage your imagination, pull at your heartstrings and remind you what it’s like to find wonder and beauty in all situations.
Past productions by The 7 Fingers include Reversible (2017/18), Cuisine & Confessions (2016/17), Traces (2014/15), Sequence 8 (2012/13) and PSY (2010/11).
An aspiring young director rampages against the art created by his mother’s generation. A nubile young actress wrestles with an aging Hollywood star for the affections of a renowned novelist. And everyone discovers just how disappointing love, art, and growing up can be.
In this irreverent, contemporary, and very funny remix of Chekhov’s The Seagull, Aaron Posner stages a timeless battle between young and old, past and present, in search of the true meaning of it all. Original songs composed by James Sugg draw the famously subtextual inner thoughts of Chekhov’s characters explicitly to the surface. Stupid F##king Bird will tickle, tantalize, and incite you to consider how art, love, and revolution fuel your own pursuit of happiness.
