P.O.V.: Farmingville

“Farmingville” explores the tensions surrounding the influx of Mexican immigrants, many illegal, into this suburban community on Long Island, N.Y. The impact has been “severe and intense,” says Margaret Bianculli-Dyber, who organized the opposition after some 1500 Mexicans arrived in this town of 15,000 in the late 1990s, most to work in landscaping and restaurants. The opposition turned ugly, culminating in the attempted murder of two workers (one of whom is interviewed), and caught in the middle are local officials, who are powerless to force the newcomers out even if they wanted to. Says Suffolk County (N.Y.) legislator Paul Tonna: “This is not an issue that is going to go away.” “Farmingville” won a Special Jury Award at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival.
