Independent film to be shown at ETSU

February 17, 2020   |   7 pm @ East Tennessee State University

• FEB. 17: “The Infiltrators,” a narrative independent film, is shown at 7 p.m. in East Tennessee State University’s Ball Hall Auditorium, Room 127, as part of the South Arts Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers, sponsored by Mary B. Martin School of the Arts. Admission is free and is followed by a Q&A with producer Darren Dean and a light reception. In “The Infiltrators,” directed by Cristina Ibarra and Alex Rivera, Marco Saavedra and his partner Viridiana plan a sort of prison break from the Broward Transitional Center in Florida, an immigration holding facility. As members of the National Immigrant Youth Alliance, they believe the best way to stop deportations is to do it from the inside. Playing out like a thriller heist film, the story unfolds through interwoven footage of real events and scripted re-enactments. Free and open to the public. 423-439-8587,
