Fall Film Series: Farmingville

September 13, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Fall film series FB

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.

About Farmingville:

“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

About Vecinos:

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.
