Frontier Youth

A valid video file was found, or could not be loaded!

Ray, Ariel, and Alondra are young people growing up in Agua Prieta, Mexico, and Douglas, Arizona, neighboring border towns defined by undocumented migration and a militarized border. Frontier Youth transcends the political debates, focusing instead on the personal stories of its protagonists,  each of whom is profoundly marked by American immigration and border policies. Through their perspectives, the film examines the challenges of bi-cultural youth; as security along the border continues to tighten, they enter adulthood with inseparable ties to both sides.

"Frontier Youth is a moving and subtly provocative film that puts a human face on the questions of immigration and border enforcement. After seeing Kane's film, all students will have a fuller appreciation for the heart-wrenching consequences of our immigration policies and practices."

Fixed: The Science/Fiction of Human Enhancement
From botox to bionic limbs, the human body is more "upgradeable" than ever. But how much of it can we alter and still be human? What do we gain or lose in the process?

Haunting and humorous, poignant and political, Fixed rethinks "disability" and "normalcy" by exploring technologies that promise to change our bodies and minds forever. Ideal for courses in disability studies, science & technology studies, sociology, engineering, medicine, ethics, social work, philosophy, psychology, public policy and legal studies.
