    Released: 2004
    Running Time: 78 min
    Subtitles: English, Spanish

    In some ways, it's a familiar American story: an influx of illegal immigrants crossing the border from Mexico to do work the locals won't; a flourishing "low-wage" labor market that depends on them; rising tensions with the resident Anglo population; charges and counter-charges of lawlessness and racism; organizing and counter-organizing -- then a violent hate crime that tears a community apart. FARMINGVILLE meticulously reveals the underlying forces, and the human impact, of what has become the largest influx of Mexican workers in U.S. history — a migration that economic globalization is carrying beyond border areas and major cities and into the small cities and towns of America. The filmmakers spent nearly a year in FARMINGVILLE, talking to all sides and filming the conflict as it unfolded in legal and political maneuverings, community organizing, vigilante action and, most tragically, violence. FARMINGVILLE achieves a remarkable intimacy with many of the principal players in the town's drama, who share their personal hopes and fears, revealing just how profoundly local all politics, even global politics, are.
