This fall, the College of Arts and Sciences’ Themester explores the theme “Democracy.” Coinciding with fall 2020’s U.S. presidential election, Themester 2020 engages in a global interdisciplinary debate about the role and future of democracy with over two dozen undergraduate courses and numerous public activities and events throughout the fall semester. Themester at IU Cinema presents a thought-provoking sample of films that depict or interpret facets of democracy such as public discourse, civic engagement, and electoral politics, and the forces that counter or corrupt them. This partnership is supported through IU Cinema’s Creative Collaborations program.
Join us for a virtual film introduction, film screening, and interactive Q&A with Themester 2020: Democracy. Be sure to download the free online meeting platform Zoom to your computer or phone to be able to access this virtual event and sign up to join the September 11 Zoom event via this link.
You will be able to stream the film at no charge through September 13 to the device of your choosing. Only those registered for the Zoom event will have access to the film.
About Whose Streets? (2017)
- This powerful, raw documentary dives into 2014 Ferguson, Missouri in the aftermath of the police shooting of Michael Brown. This documentary combines professional footage, news clips, interviews, and cell phone videos to present the birth of the #BlackLivesMatter movement. Released on the third anniversary of Brown’s death, the film has been called “an essential testament to the commitment of activists … told in their own fervent voices” (David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter). Contains mature content.
