Unity in the Community has announced that its Immigration and Human Rights Cinema cooperative film series will continue this spring at the Prince William Campus.

Presented in partnership with Prince William University Life, the first film in the spring series is “9500 Liberty,” scheduled for Tuesday, Jan 26, at 6:30 p.m. in the Verizon Auditorium.

The documentary details how Prince William County became ground zero in America’s battle over immigration policy when elected officials adopted a law requiring police officers to question anyone they have “probable cause” to suspect is an undocumented immigrant.

Filmmakers Eric Byler and Annabel Park will be present for a post-screening discussion, along with Prince William Police Chief Charlie Dean.

The screening is free and open to the public; light refreshments will be served before the film is shown.
