Sunday Cinema Oscar Edition: Ava DuVernay's "13th"

Sun, Feb 26, 2017 -
2:00 pm to 4:00 pm

Join us for a special screening of Ava DuVernay's Oscar-nominated documentary "13th." “13th” - which takes its title from the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution abolishing slavery - explores the link between slavery and the modern-day prison system. The film, which is nominated for the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature, was the opening film at the New York Film Festival and was released Oct. 6 on Netflix, but was never released in theaters. Due to overwhelming demand by educational institutions, Netflix has granted public screening access to the film for a limited time.

This film is rated TV-MA for disturbing images, language, brief nudity, and drug references.
