The Columbus Crossing Borders film "Breathe Free" is a moving documentary that shares the stories of refugees and the artists inspired by those stories.  Through the lens of filmmaker Doug Swift, we encounter those who fled war, violence and persecution.  We witness the unease and fear surrounding U.S. border issues.  And we learn how this leads to 34 artists producing a project based on forced migration.  The Columbus Crossing Borders art exhibit opens  at 10:00 a.m. the next day.  Reception starts at 4:00 p.m. and more film screenings.
