WHERE: Symphony Space, 2537 Broadway at 95th Street
The New York Immigration Coalition is proud to present, as part of Symphony Space’s Sonidos festival, a special screening of abUSed: The Postville Raid, a full-length documentary by internationally acclaimed director Luis Argueta (The Silence of Neto).
SEE trailer here: http://www.abusedthepostvilleraid.com/
A panel discussion, moderated by Julia Preston, national correspondent covering immigration for The New York Times, follows the screening. Panelists include:
* Luis Argueta, director and producer of the film
* M. Patricia Smith, Solicitor of the US Department of Labor and former New York State Labor Commissioner
* Erik Camayd-Freixas, Court Appointed Interpreter, whose experience at Postville led him to publish an essay about what he saw there
* David Leopold, National President, American Immigration Lawyers Association
* Chung-Wha Hong, executive director of the New York Immigration Coalition.
The film weaves together the personal stories of the individuals, the families, and the town directly affected by what was, at the time, the largest U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raid in the United States. On May 12th, 2008, in Postville, Iowa (population 2,320), 900 armed ICE agents arrested 389 immigrant workers at Agriprocessors, Inc., the largest kosher slaughter-house and meat-packing plant in the country. Of the legal proceedings that ensued, one of the judges that presided over them said he “was embarrassed to be a U.S. District judge that day.”
Doors open to the general public on a first-come, first serve basis at 6:45 pm.
This special screening is co-sponsored by Foundation for Child Development (which supported the publication of “Facing Our Future: Children in the Aftermath of Immigration Enforcement”), Four Freedoms Fund, a fund of Public Interest Projects, Michael J. Hirschhorn, Nikki Will Stein, and The Paul and Daisy Soros Fellowship for New Americans.

About Bamboo Bros:
The Bamboo Bros are re-energizing hip hop with a sound brand new and way back. Kurious Jorge brings the seasoned, effortless flow and Dave Dar, the fresh, trusted ear. Their talents overlap, Jorge, a consumer of all genres, Dar, an agile MC, together making a music light and strong as bamboo. Both Uptown sons with Tropical Roots, Jorge and Dar were friends before they were collaborators, admirers of each other’s tastes and styles. They match lush, dirty beats made from real instrumentation and ancient samples with seductive, hopeful lyrics. This is music to rock in a hammock or subway car, to build a philosophy or family by, hip hop that digs deep to rise up.
