ONLINE TICKET SALES END AT 5:00 pm on May 25. Remaining tickets will be sold at the door starting at 7:30.

For a group of extraordinary women who practice immigration law, the refugee crisis is a call to action they can’t ignore.

LAS ABOGADAS follows a group of immigration attorneys over a multi-year odyssey as the U.S. Government under President Trump upends every law meant to protect those fleeing from persecution, violence and war. USA, 2022, 60 minutes.

Doors open at 7:30 with the 9 piece Afro-Brazilian and World Music band, Rosario featuring T.E.N.S. Las Abogadas will screen at 8:00, followed by recent immigrants to our community telling their stories, and ending with another performance by Rosario featuring T.E.N.S.

Growing up in an immigrant family Humberto Rosario learned to navigate the complexities of cultural identiry through rhythm and rhyme. “Te Encontro no Samba” (T.E.N.S.) is a dynamic Afro-Brazilian music project founded in 2017. What began as a small “roda de Samba” performance group has now evolved into explorations of other sounds of the African diaspora.

If you have been in The Nyack Center in the last year you are no doubt aware that the screen that was installed in 2005 had come to the end of its days – and maybe you heard us say that a new screen and rolling mechanism would cost $13,000 (which ultimately became $16,000). The Nyack Center did purchase a beautiful new screen that Rivertown Film is helping pay for, and we need to do that without jeopardizing the ongoing programs of Rivertown Film or those of the Nyack Center, whose services support – among others – immigrant communities such as those shown in Las Abogadas.


PLEASE HELP US. The screen at the Nyack Center is a community resource unlike anything that can be found in Rockland County. This is a special circumstance, and WE NEED THOSE OF YOU WHO UNDERSTAND WHAT A UNIQUE RECOURCE THIS IS to help us pay for it, URGENTLY! Purchase a ticket, take part in our raffle, make a donation to our screen fund or become a sponsor.

From setting up a legal clinic in a Volkswagen bus in the middle of five thousand desperate migrants, to forcing border guards to follow the law and accept a blind woman into U.S. custody, to crossing the border to counsel African migrants stuck in Tijuana, to standing up to human traffickers in a makeshift refugee camp along the Mexican side of the border, to giving legal advice in the brutally hot Mexican sun to families desperate to see American soil — we watch our Las Abogadas characters’ surreal journeys to try and help.

In their own narration, we hear how each woman came to do the work they do. With archival footage we see their own personal stories of migration and their desire to give others the same opportunities.

O jogo móvel tem vindo a crescer há vários anos. Naturalmente, os melhores casinos online também reagem à tendência e fornecem-lhe várias aplicações ou websites móveis. Nesta página, dedicamo-nos especificamente às últimas e mais populares opções de jogos móveis que são oferecidas no mundo dos casinos em linha. No teste encontrará toda a informação sobre aplicações para dispositivos Android e iOS, assim como websites móveis.
Cada casino móvel Português tem a sua própria forma de "fornecer" aos jogadores slots móveis e clássicos. Alguns dependem de aplicações especiais para smartphones Android, bem como para iPhones ou mesmo iPads. Geralmente, os pequenos programas funcionam nos telemóveis correspondentes, mas também é maravilhoso jogar em movimento com um tablet.
Outras empresas, contudo, juram pelos sites da HMTL5. Este é, por assim dizer, o casino original com quase todo o portfólio em forma comprimida. Ambas as variantes têm vantagens, pelo que no final terá de decidir por si próprio qual a solução que melhor se adapta a si e às suas necessidades. HTML5 é sempre adequado se utilizar um smartphone ou tablet com sistemas que não os mencionados - Windows, por exemplo. Para este software, muito poucos casinos online desenvolveram até agora aplicações especiais. Assim, a coisa mais fácil a fazer é chamar o URL do casino e depois beneficiar da oferta de jogos móveis directamente no browser.
Em princípio, isto deve funcionar sempre sem problemas nos dispositivos actuais. O desempenho na área dos jogos móveis está a melhorar visivelmente, de modo que esta opção de jogo dificilmente é inferior à do casino com navegador no PC de casa. É claro que não se pode jogar apenas gratuitamente em movimento. Os sites HTML5 são, no final, algo como a forma pequena do grande casino. Isto significa que iniciar sessão e jogar para obter ganhos reais é tão fácil na estrada como em casa, no ambiente de trabalho. A única diferença é, evidentemente, a resolução mais pequena, e é aqui que o trigo é separado do joio.
