POV Film Screening: Blowin' Up
Friday, February 14, 2020
Join us for a free screening at the Madelyn Helling Library: Blowin' Up.
Working within a broken criminal justice system, a team of rebel heroines work to change the way women arrested for prostitution are prosecuted. With intimate camerawork that lingers on details and brings the Queens criminal courtroom to life, BLOWIN' UP celebrates acts of steadfast defiance, even as it reveals the hurdles these women must face. Official Selection, 2018 Tribeca Film Festival.
This event is a collaboration with POV, the award-winning independent nonfiction film series on PBS. (www.pbs.org/pov) Popcorn will be served!
