On Tuesday (2/2), As part of the FILM + MEDIA SCREENING SERIES, directors Shari Robertson and Michael Camerini screened their 2000 documentary, WELL-FOUNDED FEAR. 

The film takes its title from the formal definition of a refugee under the UN Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees, as a person who deserves protection, “owing to a well-founded fear of persecution for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group, or political opinion.” The film analyzes the US asylum process by following several asylum applicants and asylum officers through actual INS interviews.
