Columbia Public Library, Friends Room

Join us for a special showing of “Welcome to Shelbyville” (Film is 50 min., rated PG.) at Columbia Public Library. The film is co-sponsored by Missouri Immigrant & Refugee Advocates as part of the photo exhibit “The Missouri Immigrant Experience: Faces and Places” April 5–25 at the Columbia Public Library.  Here’s a synopsis from their facebook page:

Change has come to rural Tennessee. Set against the backdrop of a shaky economy, “Welcome to Shelbyville” takes an intimate look at a southern town as its residents – whites and African Americans, Latinos and Somalis – grapple with their beliefs, their histories, and their evolving ways of life. “Welcome to Shelbyville” is directed and produced by Kim Snyder and executive produced by BeCause Foundation in association with Active Voice.

Check out the official film site for more info. While this film is not part of the monthly Center Aisle Cinema series, we’d still encourage you to attend.
