Underwater DREAMS is "an epic story of how the sons of undocumented Mexican immigrants learned how to build an underwater robot from Home Depot parts. And defeat engineering powerhouse MIT in the process." The film is being considered "the most politically significant documentary film since Waiting for Superman (The Daily Beast) and was featured this Summer on the Colbert Report.

Tonight is your chance to see a FREE screening at 7pm in the Kansas Union as part of Hispanic Heritage month.

Brought to you by KU's Latino Faculty & Staff Council, Hispanic American Leadership Organization, and the Harvest of Hope Leadership Academy. Free popcorn and drinks, thanks to the Coca-Cola Fund. Facebook Event.
