The Austin Film Society and the AAAFF team up to present ABACUS: SMALL ENOUGH TO JAIL (U.S./Documentary), playing on Saturday, June 10th, Sunday, June 11th, and Wednesday, June 14th at the new AFS Cinema.

Founded by Shanghainese immigrant Thomas Sung, the Abacus Federal Savings Bank has been a New York institution since 1984, providing banking and insurance services in Manhattan’s Chinatown and beyond. But in the wake of the subprime mortgage collapse of 2007-08, Abacus became the only bank to face criminal charges for its actions during the crisis—actions traced to a tiny handful of employees it had already dismissed and reported to authorities. Award-winning filmmaker Steve James (HOOP DREAMS, LIFE ITSELF) raises troubling questions about bias and scapegoating in this sympathetic portrayal of a family-run business and the community it serves.

Date & Time: Saturday, June 10th 4:30 P.M. / Sunday, June 11th 7:00 P.M. / Wednesday, June 14th 7:30 P.M.
Location: AFS Cinema (6406 N I-35 Suite 3100)
