Executive Producer Patrice O'Neil will introduce the film and facilitate a post-screening Q&A

Not In Our Town: Light in the Darkness is a one-hour documentary about a town coming together to take action after anti-immigrant violence devastates the community. The story follows Mayor Paul Pontieri and Patchogue residents as they openly address the underlying causes of a violent murder, work to heal divisions, and begin taking steps to ensure everyone in their village will be safe and respected.

Not in Our Town is a movement to stop hate, address bullying, and build safe, inclusive communities for all. Not in Our Town films, new media, and organizing tools help local leaders build vibrant, diverse cities and towns, where everyone can participate.

Patrice O’Neill, Not In Our Town Executive Producer, is an award-winning media producer dedicated to telling stories about everyday people transforming their communities. As co-founder of the Oakland-based non-profit strategic media production company The Working Group, she has produced successful national series on PBS for fifteen years, using a multi-platform approach that utilizes documentary film, social networking, outreach and organizing efforts to encourage dialogue and spur action.

The mission of Multicultural BRIDGE is to promote mutual understanding and acceptance among diverse groups serving as a resource to both local institutions and the community at large. The organization serves as a catalyst for change, integration and equity through collaboration, education, training, dialogue, fellowship and advocacy.
