9500 Liberty

Starts Friday, September 10 at the Coolidge Corner Theatre


Prince William County, Virginia becomes ground zero in America's explosive
battle over immigration policy when elected officials adopt a law requiring
police officers to question anyone they have "probable cause" to suspect is
an undocumented immigrant.


9500 Liberty, a powerful new documentary by Annabele Park and Eric Byler,
reveals the startling vulnerability of a local government, targeted by
national anti-immigration networks using the Internet to frighten and
intimidate lawmakers and citizens. Alarmed by a climate of fear and racial
division, residents form a resistance using YouTube videos and virtual town
halls, setting up a real-life showdown in the seat of county government.  

The devastating social and economic impact of the "Immigration Resolution"
is felt in the lives of real people in homes and in local businesses. But
the ferocious fight to adopt and then reverse this policy unfolds inside
government chambers, on the streets, and on the Internet. 9500 Liberty
provides a front row seat to all three battlegrounds.  To learn more, visit
