Q&A film subject Jamil Sunsin and Steven Choi, Executive Director of the New York Immigration Coalition, with Westchester Community Foundation Executive Director Laura Rossi, followed by a reception

Seen through the eyes of 15-year-old Jamil Sunsin, Colossus reveals the devastating personal impact of America’s immigration policies on one Jersey City family. When Jamil’s parents and sister are deported, he becomes an activist whose personal experience and courage in advocating for family reunification provide an intimate, inspiring lens on a timely issue.
