Meet Film Director Sunday: Immokolee USA

Posted by Trish Riley, August 28, 2009

Local filmmaker Georg Koszulinski will be at the downtown library to screen his recent film “Immokolee U.S.A.” and answer questions afterwards.

Immokalee, Florida (pop. 19,763) is a town in Collier County, not too far from the state’s Gulf Coast, with a name that means �My Home� in Seminole. The area is home to a large Seminole Reservation, complete with casino, while nearby is the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, a large area of protected wetland crucial to the survival of endangered local flora and fauna. It is also the focus of this fascinating, compelling film about the realities of American work in the 21st century, from a 29-year-old native Floridian whose previous works (including Cracker Crazy and America In Pictures) have shown a willingness to tackle complex and controversial subjects in an accessible and engaging manner.

This event is free and open to the public.
