Free Screening: "The U-Turn" with Filmmaker Luis Argueta

U Turn
Miller Learning Center (MLC) - Room 213

Chronicling the aftermath of a 2008 immigration raid at a meatpacking plant in Postville, Iowa — the largest in U.S. history — The U-Turn(2016) follows the legal fight of the plant’s undocumented workers for U-visas available to victims of crimes, including workplace abuses like sexual harassment and child labor violations. Part intimate portrait, part courtroom drama, the documentary offers fresh perspectives on immigration to the United States, one of the most urgent and polarizing issues of our time. Filmmaker Luis Argueta will introduce the documentary and participate in a Q&A session after the screening. This event is sponsored by the Department of Theatre and Film Studies, the Willson Center for Humanities and Arts, and the Latin American and Caribbean Studies Institute, and is free and open to the public.
