On September 6, the Committee of 100 will co-present a reception and special screening of the documentary Abacus: Small Enough to Jail in New York City. This documentary recounts the story of the Chinese immigrant Sung family, owners of Abacus Federal Savings Bank of Chinatown, New York, in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis. This illuminating film explores the Sung family’s efforts to contest criminal charges brought against them by U.S. district attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr., and it invites discussion of the motivations behind the indictment; Abacus Bank was the only U.S. bank to be charged in the wake of the great recession. The Sung family ultimately prevailed, but it took all they had to fight the unfair accusations.
