Coming to America Film Festival to Be Held at the Shrewsbury Public Library

SHREWSBURY, Massachusetts – Immigration to be the central topic at a free film festival. The festival will be Saturday, April 2nd.

The Shrewsbury Public Library, thanks to a donation from the Friends of the Shrewsbury Public Library, is excited to offer a free film festival entitled ‘Coming to America’.  Three thought-provoking films will be shown at the Temp Site Meeting Room, projected on the big screen and shown with great sound for all those that are interested.  While the showings are free, seating is first come, first served.  People are welcome to come for any or all of the films.  Those in attendance may also bring whatever movie snacks they wish to the event.

The schedule is as follows…

10AM – English Vinglish (From India to America)- An inspiring story of an Indian woman learning to navigate an unfamiliar city, New York. She joins a conversational English class, meets a diverse group of people, makes new friends, and gains confidence.

12:30PM – A Better Life (From Mexico to America) – Oscar-nominated film about a gardener in East L.A. who struggles to keep his son away from gangs and immigration agents while trying to give his son the opportunities he never had.

2:45PM – Brooklyn (From Ireland to America) – Oscar-nominated film about an Irish immigrant who lands in 1950s Brooklyn, where she quickly falls into a romance with a local. When her past catches up with her, however, she must choose between two countries and the lives that exist within.
