What: 9500 Liberty, Screening and Director Q&A
When: Thursday, January 27 at 7:30 pm (but let's meet a little earlier to try to sit together -- look for a large Meetup sign and a pink hat and scarf)
Where: Sixth & I Historic Synagogue, 600 I Street NW, Washington, DC 20001
Directions: Sixth & I does not have a parking lot. Street parking in the neighborhood is limited so they recommend taking the Metro to the Gallery Place-Chinatown Metro stop on the red, yellow, and green lines. Use the 7th and H Street exit.
Parking: Metered street parking is available in the neighborhood surrounding Sixth & I. Nearby parking lots include the PMI Parking Lot (6th and Massachusetts Avenue, entrance on Mass.), the Verizon Center Parking Lot (6th and G Streets, entrance on 6th), and the City Center Parking Lot (9th and I Streets, entrance on 9th Street).

About the film:
Winner of numerous awards from film festivals all over the country, 9500 Liberty tells the story of a Northern Virginia county's explosive debate over immigration. The film follows a divisive piece of legislation as it makes its way through the Prince William County Council and envelopes the entire community, becoming a powerful symbol in the struggle to define what it means to be American. The Arizona Republic calls the film "timely" and "chilling." The screening will be followed by a Q&A and discussion with the film's director, Annabel Park.
Total RUNNING TIME: 80 minutes (1 hr, 20m)
