ROCKLAND — The Rockland Public Library, 80 Union St., presents a screening of “Stateless” by Michèle Stephenson, Lea Marin and Jennifer Holness Thursday, Jan. 5, at 6 p.m. This event is free and open to all.

Director Michèle Stephenson’s new documentary follows families of those affected by the 2013 legislation stripping citizenship from Dominicans of Haitian descent, uncovering the complex history and present-day politics of Haiti and the Dominican Republic through the grassroots electoral campaign of a young attorney named Rosa Iris.

This event is a collaboration with the award-winning documentary series POV (pbs.org/pov).

This program will be shown in the library’s Community Room and simultaneously streamed via Zoom. For more information or for links to attend via Zoom, please email elewis@rocklandmaine.gov by 4 p.m. Jan. 5 and identify the event you are interested in attending in the subject line.
