Product Description
This film covers what happens when ICE agents invade a meat processing plant in the small town of Postville Iowa. A true story, this film is EXCELLENT at explaining what happens to undocumented workers when they are detained, deported, separated from families, how they are processed, why they come to work, and the responsibilities of the people who own the businesses that benefit from their presence. Movie guide contains 26 questions in chronological order of the film, with opportunities for students to brainstorm, pair share and discuss their thoughts and reactions. Film runs just over an hour and is available for purchase at http://abusedthepostvilleraid.blogspot.com/ or on demand at vimeo.
There are several links for follow up trailers https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tDG6-1zp52w&list=PL00B092D3FE38B664 if you want to track with students what happened a year later. This film works well for a social studies class discussing immigration or a Spanish class. The documentary is in English with subtitled interviews in Spanish and runs just over an hour.
