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.
