In 1999, the Sanford family began documenting their lives 17 blocks from the US Capital building. The footage tracks 20 years of struggle and resiliency in the face of crises that grip our communities.
Boone County Community Against Violence joins Ragtag Cinema to talk about empathy, resources, and strengthening our city.
About the series:
The Show Me Series is a nod to our long-established proclivity as Missourians to approach new things with a hint of skepticism (until we see it for ourselves, of course). As well, a challenge to show our community all the possibilities shared experiences with film can hold — and the potential to serve as a catalyst for conversations that can move our collective pendulum closer to equity, inclusion, and unity.
Rooted in media literacy, and challenging the cinema canon — post-film discussions will take us beyond content, to interrogate form, intention, and reaction — and weave historical contexts with the here and now.
Ragtag Cinema is honored to co-host the Show Me Series with our Community Partners.
The Show Me Series is monthly, and free to the public.
