"Tony and Janina's American Wedding"

The International Club at DHS and Welcoming Michigan are proud to present "Tony and Janina's American Wedding" on Wednesday, Octotober 19, 2011 at 7:00 PM (Michigan State University International Center Room #303). Admission is free. The following is a synopsis of the film (taken from an official Web site) and other general information:

Tony & Janina’s American Wedding is a feature length documentary that gets to the heart of the broken, red tape ridden U.S. immigration system. After 18 years in America, Tony and Janina Wasilewski’s family is torn apart when Janina is deported back to Poland, taking their 6 year old son Brian with her. Set on the backdrop of the Chicago political scene, and featuring Illinois Congressman Luis Gutierrez at the heart of the immigration reform movement, this film follows the Wasilewski’s 3-year struggle to be reunited, as their Senator Barack Obama rises to the Presidency. With a fresh perspective on the immigration conversation, this film tells the untold human rights story of Post-9/11, that every undocumented immigrant in America faces today, with the power to open the conversation for change.

Many thanks to Ruthless Films for making the film available for screening and Nicole Namy of the Office of International Students and Scholars at Michigan State University for providing the venue and other logistical support.
