Immigration issues are big in Arizona, but we don't often hear about what happens after people are deported. The documentary "Tony and Janina's American Wedding" offers insight, following the struggles of the Wasilewski family, who are torn apart when, after 18 years in America, Janina is deported back to Poland, taking 6-year-old son Brian with her.

According to a news release, the film documents the three-year struggle of Janina and Brian to be reunited with Tony, and tells "the untold human-rights story of post-9/11 America that every undocumented immigrant faces today."

You can see the documentary at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday at Great Hall/Armstrong Hall at the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law at Arizona State University in Tempe. Following the free showing of the film there will be a Q-and-A session with Evelyn Cruz, of the College of Law, and H.L.T Quan of ASU's Justice & Social Inquiry School of Social Transformation.
