This chapter reports on the implementation and outcomes of a cinema-based Spanish-English teletandem exchange between two groups of displaced language learners in Mexico and the United States. The sessions allowed students to discuss the social justice issues presented in the films through project-based collaborative activities delivered in a transcultural setting.
