9500 Liberty

9500 Liberty 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 townhalls, 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

9500 Liberty is one of those documentaries that everybody should see. It was filmed in Manassas, Virginia and the idea is that this is a very affluent town that somehow looked like it had been thrown into the deep south a hundred years ago and the issue about illegal aliens. It is a very well done documentary. It makes you really care about the people that should be shown in every civics class in America. It is sobering, scary, and very entertaining. Four stars.
