Fall Film Series: Farmingville
September 13, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Our fall film series will transpire during AHA! nights in New Bedford. We’re kicking it off with the award-winning 2004 documentary Farmingville, a provocative, complex, and emotionally charged look into the ongoing nationwide controversy surrounding a suburban community, its ever-expanding population of illegal immigrants, and the shockingly hate-based attempted murders of two Mexican day laborers.
We will begin the screening with a short clip from Mexican artist Adriana Kong, and we will hear about a collaborative video workshop with Kong that is part of the “Vecinos” exhibition, coming to New Bedford in October.
“It may well be the most important film to debut at the Sundance Film Festival…It is an absolutely terrific documentary on a complex, difficult subject. …and allows us to get to know all sides of this dispute.”
— Lou Dobbs, Lou Dobbs Tonight, CNN
Vecinos, a temporary art gallery + interactive platform occurring October 4-7, in an interstitial space in New Bedford, MA. It’s purpose is to host intercambio (exchange) between Mexico and the U.S. through various public events + workshops , to create a dialogue around the meaning of ‘vecinos’ (neighbors) while sculpting + archiving intimate perceptual portraits of living story and human experience.
