LI(P): The Immigration Experience Through Dance and Song

The Immigration Experience Through Dance and Song


The Transition Network of Long Island

Contemporary Social Issues Committee


Invites you to a celebration of American immigration.    Over the years, films have depicted a variety of powerful immigration experiences.  At this event we will watch clips and analyze movies that detail the immigrant in a myriad of ways, from the early silent days of Charlie Chaplan’s ‘The Immigrant’ (1917). To more recent films like ‘Brooklyn’ (2015), ‘Minari’ (2020), as well as classics like ‘The Godfather’(1990), and ‘Coming to America’ (1988).  


The discussion will be lead by Greg Blank.  Greg has over 15 years experience as a film producer, director and lecturer.  He has won numerous awards and accolades at various film festivals around the country.  He has won two Fair Media Council Folio Awards for outstanding journalism, covering history, art, music, film and human interest stories.


In addition, we will be entertained by the Island Hill Choral Group who will present holiday songs.  The Island Group is an organization of Sweet Adelines who love the barbershop sound and shimmering harmonies of “A Cappella” experience.  It is a family of women who love sharing friendship and making great music together.

Join us for a plated three course luncheon at Captain Bill's restaurant.
