MY NAME IS SIRI

“MY NAME IS SIRI” MOVIE SCREENING April 24, 2024 at 1:00PM Q&A session with Siri at 1:45PM An inspirational story about resilience, a mother’s unconditional love, and a family determined to create a better life for their daughter. Siri was born into a San Francisco Bay Area immigrant family and was diagnosed with autism at the age of 3. Being unable to speak and with behaviors typical of autism, she had a tumultuous childhood and school experience while growing up. She made a breakthrough when her mother taught her how to make jewelry. With an online store and exposure to audiences, Siri’s confidence grew tremendously. The last ‘”miracle” happened when she started communicating with the help of an alphabet board and now wants to become a neuroscientist! This documentary is about the journey of this family. www.mynameissiri.com To request an ASL interpreter email interpretingservices@santarosa.edu, VP (707) 331-1156, or text/call (707) 230-3895.

FILM SCREENING: UNSEEN

Film Screening & Q&A unseen. Monday, April 29, 2024 12:00 - 2:00 pm Santa Rosa Intercultural Center, Pioneer 380. Join us for the film screening of “Unseen” along with an opportunity to engage with pedro, (protagonist & co-writer) & Set Hernandez (director) . Film synopsis: Most people dream of a better future. Pedro, an aspiring social worker, is no different. But as a blind, undocumented immigrant, Pedro faces political restrictions to obtain his college degree, secure a job as a health care provider, and support his family. As he finally graduates, uncertainty looms over Pedro. What starts as a journey to provide mental health for his community ultimately transforms into Pedro’s path towards his own healing. Through experimental cinematography and sound, unseen reimagines a cinema accessible for blind/low vision audiences, while exploring the intersections of immigration, disability, and mental health. ASL Interpreters available upon request: To request interpreting services to access this event, please contact the Interpreting Services Office at least one week prior to the event to make arrangements. InterpretingServices @santarosa.edu, or send a text to (707) 230-3895. Audio description of the film is available during film screening.

Acompáñenos a disfrutar de la película “Unseen” (Lo que no se ve) y dialogar con Pedro (Protagonista y Coguionista) y con Set Hernández (Director). Sinopsis: La mayoría de la gente sueña con un futuro mejor. Pedro, un aspirante a trabajador social, no es diferente. Pero como inmigrante ciego e indocumentado, Pedro enfrenta restricciones políticas para obtener su título universitario, asegurar un trabajo en su campo y apoyar a su familia. Cuando finalmente se gradúa, la incertidumbre se cierne sobre Pedro. Lo que comienza como una jornada para proporcionar cuidado de salud mental a su comunidad, finalmente se transforma en el camino de Pedro hacia su propia sanación. A través del sonido y la cinematografía experimental, "lo que no se ve" reimagina la accesibilidad del cine, mientras explora las intersecciones de la inmigración, la discapacidad y la salud mental. ASL Interpreters available upon request: To request interpreting services to access this event, please contact the Interpreting Services Office at least one week prior to the event to make arrangements.
