Cutting Room for November 2018

The question “Remember when the president incarcerated a bunch of people in horrific fashion?” can now be answered with “Which president?” So it seems like a good time for Film Streams and The Middle East Cultural and Educational Services (MECES) of Omaha, the Japanese American Citizens League (JACL) Omaha Chapter and the Immigrant Legal Center […]
