"By exposing the imperfections in the election process, the film needn’t delve into the futility of actually enacting meaningful reform, but given the times we’re in — and reportedly, James is currently at work on an addendum in the aftermath of the Black Lives Matter protests that overtook the nation following the murder of George Floyd — the passion to pursue public service and to vote is hopeful enough and with all its faults, City So Real shows Chicago in all its beauty."

Abacus: Small Enough to Jail

88 minutes
Abacus: Small Enough to Jail tells the incredible saga of the Chinese immigrant Sung family, owners of Abacus Federal Savings of Chinatown, New York. Accused of mortgage fraud by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance, Jr., Abacus 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 themselves – and their bank’s legacy in the Chinatown community – over the course of a five-year legal battle.
