A screening of the documentary Stateless presented by the director, Michael Drob. In the late 1980’s Soviet Jews were once again given permission to leave the USSR. Unlike their ‘refusenik’ predecessors, those coming to the US were now burdened with having to prove “reasonable fear of persecution,” a concept simply not understood by those born into maltreatment. Because of this, thousands had their applications for refugee status denied, leaving them in Italy -- Stateless. This is the first documentary film that guides us through this experience as recalled by the emigres themselves and with political context by representatives of HIAS, NYANA, AJC and others.
