Lecture: Sleep Dealer Director Alex Rivera
Wednesday, June 24 | 5:45 pm | FREE
Film Screening | 7 pm
Filmmaker Alex Rivera has been telling new, urgent, and visually adventurous Latino stories for the past fifteen years. Sleep Dealer, his first feature, is a Sundance award-winning science-fiction film embedded with profound political and economic critiques. It's the perfect conversation-starter for discussions about issues as diverse as labor and immigration, technology and ethics, and globalization and the environment.

Rivera's lecture and film screening are presented in conjunction with Our America: The Latino Presence in American Art, a Smithsonian American Art Museum exhibition on view through June 28. Attendees will receive free admission to the exhibition prior to the lecture from 4:45-5:45 pm.
