Human Rights Video Screening in Berea

(image placeholder)

On Tuesday, February 28th, at 6:00 pm we will show another in our "Human Rights Video Series", a film entitled Well-Founded Fear. This documentary will be shown at Madison County Public Library, 319 Chestnut Street, Berea.  Produced for the PBS POV television series, Well Founded Fear provides a rare glimpse of the U.S. asylum granting process through the perspective of the Immigration and Naturalization (INS) asylum officers responsible for reviewing asylum applications. Well Founded Fear is a riveting documentary on U.S immigration policy, and will appeal to a wide audience due to the multiplicity of ethnicities, religions and nationalities that are represented by those seeking asylum.  Janet Futrell will lead a discussion after the film. The views and opinions expressed in these films do not necessarily state or reflect those of the Public Library. The Human Rights Video Project was created by National Video Resources (NVR) in partnership with the American Library Association (ALA) Public Programs Office, with major funding from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation and the Ford Foundation.                                                                                                     .(image placeholder)
