“9500 Liberty” Screens on MTV2 and mtvU 9/26

13 September 2010

The documentary 9500 Liberty will screen on MTV2 and mtvU (MTV’s college network) on Sunday, September 26 at 8 PM.

The critically acclaimed documentary chronicles the social and economic impact that a contentious immigration law – closely resembling Arizona’s SB 1070 bill – had on a county near Washington D.C. in 2007. 9500 Liberty makes its television debut simultaneously on Tr3s, MTV2 and mtvU on Sunday, September 26th at 8pm (ET/PT), as part of Hispanic Heritage Month.

Directed by Annabel Park and Eric Byler, 9500 Liberty examines the outcome of an immigration law adopted in Prince William County, Virginia in 2007, requiring police officers to question anyone they had ‘probable cause”’to suspect was an undocumented immigrant. Film critic Roger Ebert praised the documentary as a story which ‘possibly foretells what lies ahead in Arizona.’ Park and Byler are founders of the Coffee Party, which will hold its first national convention on September 24th -26th in Louisville, KY.  (from MTV Networks)
