Tony and Janina’s American Wedding

Film and director to tour Michigan with Director

Tony and Janina are a Polish-American couple. They got married in Chicago. Tony was already a US citizen and Janina was undocumented. The movie documents her deportation and Tony’s attempts to bring her back to the US. This 83 min. film follows a Polish American family through the red tape of the current U.S. immigration system, telling the untold human rights story of post-9/11, that every undocumented immigrant in America faces today. Ruth Leitman, the film’s director, will provide introduction and be available for 30 minutes for question and answers. The Michigan tour is being organized by Alliance for Immigrant Rights. Justice for Our Neighbors will host viewings in Holland and Grand Rapids.
