Documentary Film: Witness at Tornillo & bonus preview of film-in-progress, Sanctuary Rising

Saturday, February 29 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Witness at Tornillo follows Josh Rubin, a border activist who plants himself outside the child detention center in Tornillo, Texas.  Rubin draws national attention to the facility and helps to shut it down.  Today, Rubin is in Matamoros, Mexico, witnessing the inhumane conditions caused by Trump’s Remain in Mexico policy.  Taye Taye, videographer and editor of Witness at Tornillo, will be on hand to answer questions.

Sanctuary Rising is an intimate portrait of two undocumented mothers who enter Sanctuary in their local churches and continue to fight for legal status. Filmmaker Theo Rigby will be present to show a trailer and talk about next steps to complete the film.

Co-sponsored by the Kehilla Immigration Committee, Interfaith Movement for Human Integrity and Epworth United Methodist Church.
