POV: Whose Streets? Photo: Magnolia Pictures

Screening & Discussion - POV: Whose Streets?

Join us for a screening of Whose Streets?, a film that tells the gripping story of a seminal civil rights event in the summer of 2014: the Ferguson, Missouri uprising. When unarmed teenager Michael Brown is killed by police and his body is left lying in the street for hours, it marks a breaking point for St. Louis County and its African American residents. This documentary, a tale told from the point of view of the activists and leaders central to the resistance, takes an unflinching look at a community driven over the edge, desperate to assert their right to live.

This is a free event.

Screening - POV: Dark Money

WTTW, in partnership with the League of Women Voters of Oak Park and River Forest, presents a community screening of the documentary Dark Money. A century ago, corrupt money swamped Montana’s government, but Montanans weren’t having it; they rose up to prohibit corporate campaign contributions. Today, in wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision, Montana is once again fighting to preserve open and honest elections.

This is a free event.

POV: ELLA ES EL MATADOR

Free Screening – POV: ELLA ES EL MATADOR

WTTW, in partnership with the POV series, presents a free screening of the film Ella Es el Matador. For Spaniards — and for the world — nothing has expressed their country's traditionally rigid gender roles more powerfully than the image of the male matador. So sacred was the bullfighter's masculinity to Spanish identity that a 1908 law barred women from the sport.
