Abacus: Small Enough to Jail
Followed by Q&A with Lawrence Fleischer
Join us at the Mulberry Street Branch for a screening of Frontline’s award winning documentary Abacus: Small Enough to Jail. Afterwards, we will have a Q&A and discussion lead by attorney and CUNY Professor Lawrence Fleischer.
“Abacus, a small family-run bank, becomes the only U.S. bank to face criminal charges in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis. The indictment and subsequent trial forces the Sung family to defend itself — and its bank’s legacy in the Chinatown community — over the course of a five-year legal battle.”
The film is 88 minutes long with a discussion afterwards.
