Film- 'The Letter'

The San Diego Public Library will be showing the movie The Letter to highlight concepts from the One Book, One San Diego selection "Outcasts United."

This award-winning film explores what American news outlets have dubbed the Somali Invasion of Lewiston, Maine-an insulated, predominantly white former mill town struggling to maintain its equilibrium in the wake of the 9/11 tragedy. A firestorm of controversy erupts when the Mayor of the town sends an open letter to newly-arrived Somali refugees trying to stop the flow of refugees moving to the city.

Directed by Ziad Hamzeh, 76 minutes, Somalia/USA, 2003

The movie will be shown at the Central Library, Downtown San Diego.
