Founded in 1984, Abacus Federal Savings Bank (國寶銀行) is one of the banks in New York City’s Chinatown that serve the Chinese immigrant community. In the wake of the 2008 financial crisis, it became the only U.S. bank to face criminal charges.
Please join us for a screening of the Academy Awards-nominated documentary by Steve James, Abacus: Small Enough to Jail that tells the saga of the five-year legal battle of the Chinese immigrant Sung family, owners of Abacus Bank, accused of mortgage fraud by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance, Jr.
Followed by Q&A with Sung family members.
