DON'T TELL ANYONE (NO LE DIGAS A NADIE): POV Film Screening and Discussion

Tuesday, July 18, 2017, at 6:30 p.m. in the Auditorium

The Keene Public Library invites you to a screening of the movie DON'T TELL ANYONE (NO LE DIGAS A NADIE) by Mikaela Shwer.

In a community where silence is seen as necessary for survival, immigrant activist Angy Rivera joins a generation of Dreamers ready to push for change in the only home she's ever known — the United States. A co-presentation with Latino Public Broadcasting.

Since the age of 4, Angy Rivera has lived in the United States with a secret that threatens to upend her life: She is undocumented. Now 24 and facing an uncertain future, Rivera becomes an activist for undocumented youth with a popular advice blog and a YouTube channel boasting more than 27,000 views. She steps out of the shadows a second time to share her story of sexual abuse, an experience all too common among undocumented women. Don't Tell Anyone (No Le Digas a Nadie) follows Rivera's remarkable journey from poverty in rural Colombia to the front page of The New York Times. A co-presentation with Latino Public Broadcasting, which premiered on PBS Sept. 21, 2015.

The Keene Public Library partners with PBS to present the POV Documentary Film Series. The majority of these films are screened at the library before they air on national television. Join us to watch the films and engage in a discussion about the film afterward.
