Program Description

Program Details

Join us for a free showing of The U-Turn: A Transformational Journey followed by a discussion. The U-Turn is the third documentary in Luis Argueta’s immigration trilogy and narrates the transformational journey of the immigrant workers who broke the silence about the abuses they endured at the Agriprocessors meatpacking plant in Postville, Iowa and the community that would not abandon them.

The Ames United Church of Christ's Theologian in Residence program will continue the conversation with David Vasquez-Levy March 1-3.

Provided in partnership with Ames Public Library and Ames United Church of Christ. Supported by the Ames Public Library Friends Foundation.
