purposefully got themselves arrested by Border Patrol, put in shadowy for-profit detention center

POV screening hosted by Rockland library: The Infiltrators

The Rockland Public Library presents The Infiltrators, Thursday, June 17, at 6:15 p.m., to be screened over Zoom. This event is free and open to all.

“We are thrilled to host our third virtual film screening of the year,” said the Library, in a news release. “Please note that unlike our typical Thursday night programs, it will not be recorded and archived to YouTube.”

The Infiltrators, a 2019 film by Alex Rivera and Cristina Ibarra, is the true story of two young immigrants who get purposefully arrested by Border Patrol and put in a shadowy for-profit detention center. The film follows Marco and Viri, members of a group of radical Dreamers who are on a mission to stop deportations. And the best place to stop deportations, they believe, is in detention.

The film is a co-presentation of Latino Public Broadcasting.

This event is a collaboration with the award-winning documentary series POV (www.pbs.org/pov).
