Mexico-United States Border Fence Film Being Shown in Woodstock Friday

A press release from the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Woodstock:

Woodstock Church to Screen Film on Controversial Border Fence

Woodstock–The film The 800 Mile Wall will be shown on Friday November 11, 2011, at 7 pm at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Woodstock, 221 Dean Street. An open discussion of the film will follow the screening.

The 800 Mile Wall highlights the construction of the new border walls along the U.S.-Mexico border as well as the effect on migrants trying to cross into the U.S. “This powerful 90 minute film is an unflinching look at the failed U.S. border strategy that many believe violates fundamental human rights,” according to Sue Rekenthaler, chair of the congregation’s Social Justice Committee which is sponsoring the program.

The film is part of a new Second Friday film series featuring important documentaries of timely topics. After taking the month of December off, the series will resume in January.

The program is free and open to the public.
