A screening of The U-turn: A Transformational Journey, the third documentary in Luis Argueta’s immigration trilogy, will be followed by a question & answer session with the director.

The free, public event begins at 5 p.m. Tuesday, October 10, 2017, in Harris Center Cinema.

The U-Turn documents the transformational journey of the immigrant workers who broke their silence about the abuses they endured at Agriprocessors, a meat packing plant in Postville, Iowa, and the community that would not abandon them.

Popcorn and beverages will be served. 

The event is sponsored by the Cultural Films Committee, the Department of Spanish, the Center for Humanities, the Center for Prairie Studies, the Institute for Global Engagement, the Department of Sociology, the Peace and Conflict Studies Concentration, and the Latin American Studies Concentration.

Grinnell College welcomes the participation of people with disabilities. Accommodation requests may be made to Conference Operations.

This venue is equipped with an induction hearing loop system, which enables individuals with hearing aids set to T-Coil to hear the program.

The College welcomes the presence of minors at all age-appropriate public events and for informal visits, with the understanding that a parent, legal guardian, or other responsible adult assumes full responsibility for their child’s safety and behavior during such visits or events. In these cases, the College expects that an adult responsible for the visiting child takes measures to ensure the child’s safety and sees that the child complies with directions of College personnel. Grinnell College is not responsible for supervision of minors on campus.
