Submitted by the Event Organizer
Catch a free screening of the film Shenandoah at 6:30 pm in 145 Dwinelle Hall on the UC Berkeley campus on Monday, April 29, 2013.
An epic feature documentary about a coal mining town with a fiery immigrant heritage, once pivotal in fueling America’s industrial revolution and today in decline – which was dramatically challenged when four of the town’s white, star football players were charged in the beating death of an undocumented Mexican immigrant.
Shenandoah creates a deeply felt portrait of a working class community and the American Dream on trial.
Director and Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer David Turnley will answer questions after the screening.
Free, but an RSVP is required. There will also be free tickets available at the door.
