The documentary film "Shenandoah" examines its namesake in Pennsylvania, a coal-mining town in decline. When four white football players are charged in the beating death of an undocumented Mexican migrant, community tensions come to a head.

Director and Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer David Turnley answered questions after the screening in conversation with Maria Echaveste, the Politics and Program Development Director at the Warren Institute on Law and Social Policy at Berkeley Law School, and Harley Shaiken, professor and chair of the Center for Latin American Studies.
