I know that a lot of you saw the new documentary about the 2008 killing of Marcelo Lucero, Deputized, when it aired last month on Public Television. But if you missed it, or if you want to see the original unedited version, it will be shown on Tuesday, October 22, 2013, starting at 6 p.m. at Touro Law School.
I’ll be speaking about the film immediately after the showing.
I have seen the documentary in at least four different iterations over the past several months and I have to say that the version being offered at Touro is my favorite. It is both fast faced and comprehensive. You really get a sense of what life was like for immigrants in Patchogue during the reign of terror there from 2006 to 2008.
I enjoy talking with viewers after the showings of the film. I was deeply involved in the case and most of the scenes in the movie are memories to me. Hearing how people who only know about the killing of Ecuadoran immigrant Marcelo Lucero from news accounts gives me some perspective on a tragedy that dominated my life for three years.
If you are interested in showing Deputized to your congregation, class, or organization, get in touch with me at 516-489-8330 or call Long Island Wins.
Touro Law School is located at 225 Eastview Drive, Central Islip, NY 11722. The showing is free and all are welcome. For more information feel free to contact Erick at: Erick-Marroquin@tourolaw.edu
