About the film

Co-directed by Upper Peninsula native Heather Courtney, “The Unafraid” follows three immigrant students in Georgia, a state that has banned them and other recipients of DACA from attending its top state universities and charges them international tuition at any other public college. Shot in an observational style over a period of four years, this film takes an intimate look at the lives of Alejandro, Silvia and Aldo as they navigate activism, chasing their dream of education, and their families’ personal struggles and triumphs.
