Following the film, Erika George, a professor of law at the S.J. Quinney College of Law, will join a group of panelists to discuss the film, human rights and the local refugee community. Other panelists include filmmakers Barbara Attie and Janet Goldwater, who received support from the Sundance Institute Documentary Program to make Mrs. Goundo’s Daughter, and Gerald Brown, Director of the Refugee Service Office for the State of Utah.
