From page A4 | October 14, 2012 |

The UC Davis School of Law will host the West Coast premiere of “Shenandoah,” Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer David Tumley’s look at the beating death of an undocumented Mexican immigrant.

A panel discussion with filmmakers and civil rights experts will take place after the screening, which is set to begin at 6 p.m. Tuesday in King Hall Room 1001. Hors d’oeuvres will be served at 5:30 p.m.

The film tells the story of the July 2008 beating of Luis Ramirez in Shenandoah, Pa., on a playground by four white members of the town’s beloved Blue Devils football team.

Tumley has covered news stories in 75 countries, including the fall of the Berlin Wall, apartheid in South Africa and war in Bosnia. He shot, directed and produced the new film over four years, working in Pennsylvania and in Mexico.

Tumley will be joined during the panel discussion by Billy Peterson, the film’s executive producer; Gladys Limón, staff attorney at the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund; and Kevin R. Johnson, dean of the law school.

The California Rural Legal Assistance Foundation, Consulate General of Mexico, UCD Immigration Law Clinic, Pacific McGeorge Latino Law Group, National Lawyers Guild at King Hall, La Raza Law Students Association and Yolo Interfaith Immigration Network are co-sponsoring the event.
