Ni Aqui Ni Alla
(Neither Here Nor There)

Join us for a panel discussion and documentary screening about the challenges of dual identity facing Latinx-Americans.

Sunday, March 31 from 3 to 5 p.m. in the Park Auditorium.  

Alumna Lisbeth Perez will screen her documentary short Mi Isla about a Puerto Rican teenager whose family sends him to the Bronx during the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. He finds a place for himself in a boxing club there and it changes his life.

Lisbeth Perez is a Latina multimedia journalist from New York City. She graduated from Ithaca College with a bachelor’s in journalism and earned a master’s in journalism at Columbia University, where she was selected for the third semester documentary specialization. As a student in the program, she co-produced, shot and edited a short film, Mi Isla. She is currently working as a news associate fellow in Washington, D. C.

Before the screening, Dr. Rocío Núñez Shea will give a brief presentation discussing the subject of dual identities, focusing on children and teens.

Shea is a filmmaker and lecturer at Ithaca College’s Roy H. Park School of Communications Department of Journalism. She received her master’s and doctorate degrees in communication from the Annenberg School at the University of Pennsylvania and bachelor’s in English from Duke University. Her documentary works focuses on women and people of color in the media, with a special emphasis on the hidden impacts of underrepresented populations.
