Engage Film Series at Upstate Films
This month, Upstate Films in Rhinebeck launches a series of social justice documentary screenings that focuses transforming ideas into action. Each screening will be followed by a panel discussion where attendees will have the opportunity to hear directly impacted from impacted community members and find ways to take action. The first film is Raoul Peck's James Baldwin biopic I Am Not Your Negro, showing on April 1. On April 23, Tomorrow: Take Concrete Steps to a Sustainable Future, will be screened, followed by a panel discussion on issues impacting the region such as food, justice, the proposed Pilgrim Pipeline, and the crude oil rail shipments. Other showings include Care (about elder care) on May 6, and Documented (about illegal immigration) on June 3.
