Join KLRU and the Austin Public Library for the Indie Lens Pop-Up screening of the documentary The Graduates. This free event takes place Tuesday, March 1st, at 7 p.m. at the Austin Public Library Windsor Park Branch 5833 Westminster Dr., Austin, TX, 78723.
Pressing issues in education today are explored through the eyes of a diverse array of Latino and Latina adolescents from across the United States, offering first-hand perspectives on key challenges facing both the students and their families, as well as educators and community leaders.
Formerly known as Community Cinema, the long-running screening series has been renamed Indie Lens Pop-Up to strengthen the bond between the Independent Lens television series and local communities, and bring new energy and new audiences to the in-person events as well as online OVEE events and the broadcasts on KLRU. Over the past decade, screenings of Independent Lens films have brought more than 331,000 participants together at over 5,700 events to discuss issues that impact local communities.
