The Area

Dec 6, 6:00PM – 8:00PM

Weinberg/Newton Gallery is excited to host a screening of The Area, a feature-length, locally-produced documentary from Scrappers Film Group about the resilience of Englewood residents when a railroad company seeks to expand through their neighborhood, demolishing homes and displacing longtime community members. The screening will be followed by a discussion with filmmakers Brian Ashby and Deborah Payne in conversation with Jahmal Cole, founder of My Block, My Hood, My City. We will consider the film's relationships to our current exhibition, Block Building
