Living Stateless: Documentary Screening and Conversation with Filmmaker Matt Fillmore

April 30

Living Stateless (40 minutes) tells the stories of two families with neither home nor nation to call their own.  As the surviving generations of refugees fleeing civil war in the Philippines, these "stateless” people were born in Malaysia but are considered "illegal” and "foreign” by the government. They live in constant fear of harassment, exploitation, detention and deportation.  Denied education and resources, they are trapped in a cycle of poverty and oppression. This film explores statelessness and its effects on the generations of people living unrecognized by any land.

Living Stateless is a film by Matt Fillmore (‘08).  Matt earned his MFA from the Ohio University School of Film in 2014 and currently works as an independent filmmaker and television producer based in Denver, CO.

Moe Visiting Lecture in Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies

The Moe Visiting Lectureship was endowed by Robert and Karin Moe in honor of their daughter, Kris Burke Moe, class of 1984. This lectureship had become a signature event in the Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies program at Gustavus. It has afforded us the opportunity to bring top feminist scholars from the fields of Biology, English, Nursing, Philosophy, History, and Theatre to Gustavus. It has been invaluable in attracting students from a number of different disciplines to our program.
