An issue that is dominating elections on all levels is how to address the issue of immigration. The movie Farmingville takes on the immigration in our own backyard. This award-winning documentary was hailed by the New York Times as a “primer” on the controversial issue of illegal immigration. Farmingville is being used across the country by teachers, police officers, community organizers and policy-makers to put a human face on one of the nation’s most polarizing issues.

The documentary is centered in Farmingville because of the chilling hate-based attempted murders of two Mexican day laborers which catapulted the population, and the immigration issue, into the national headlines, unmasking a frontline of the new border wars – suburbia. This bilingual, verité documentary allows many players in the story – long term residents, day laborers, elected officials, advocates on all sides of the issue – to speak for themselves, offering a rare and intimate glimpse behind today’s headlines.
