Albany Law School will be closed today until 4pm due to the weather.
Albany Law School will host a screening of the film Fighting for Freedom with its star and producer, Kristanna Loken, on Monday, Nov. 18, at 5:00 p.m.
Inspired by an actual incident, the film uses the fight to save a three-year-old girl from deportation to explore the broader themes of immigration, politics and family. Loken, whose family owned an apple orchard in Ghent, N.Y., plays the attorney defending the young girl.
The trailer is available online.
The screening was organized by Professor Sarah Rogerson, who directs Albany Law School’s Family Violence Litigation Clinic and Immigration Project. Launched last year, the Immigration Project offers legal services to domestic violence victims with unclear or undocumented immigration status.
Loken has previously starred in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines and BloodRayne, as well as appeared in television shows including Burn Notice and Painkiller Jane. Fighting for Freedom also stars Academy Award nominee Bruce Dern and Yeniffer Behrens.
The film screening, which will take place in the law school’s Dean Alexander Moot Courtroom, is free and open to the public. For more information, visit the event's Facebook page or contact 518-445-3208 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
