The Public: film screening and discussion
Thursday, 26 September 2019,  5:30 -  8:00
Contact Mike Bauer, 265-2665

Join us for a free screening of the film The Public written and directed by Emilio Estevez, about a public library occupied by  a large group of homeless library patrons after  they learn that emergency shelters are at full capacity when a brutal Midwestern cold front makes its way to Cincinnati and they refuse to leave the library at closing time. What begins as a nonviolent, Occupy-style sit-in and ragtag act of civil disobedience quickly escalates into a standoff with local riot police. 

This film raises important questions regarding the issue of homelessness in our community, which will be addressed in a discussion following the film. Discussion guests will include Ann Nichols, Director of the East Bonner County Library District, Jon and Cathy Pomeroy, Co-Directors, Helping Hands Healing Hearts and Joanne Barlow, Program Manager of the Bonner County Homeless Transitions..
