South Arts Southern Circuit Film Screenings: Duty FreeBy John C. Campbell Folk School
WhenNov 9th 2021 - Nov 9th, 2021
All screenings and Q&As will be at 7:00 p.m.
We are pleased to announce the Folk School will be a 2021-22 Screening Partner for South Arts Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers!
South Arts is a regional organization that supports southern artists, arts organizations, and communities. We’ll be a Screening Partner for the Southern Circuit, a series of film screenings and programming that connects US-based documentary filmmakers with communities throughout the south to share their work, discuss their process, and engage with audiences about issues impacting their community. To learn more about the other ways South Arts give back to artists, including their grants and fellowships, programs, conferences, and more, visit their website.
This fall, we’ll be hosting five virtual film screenings that allow our community to connect through thematic workshops, Q&As with filmmakers, and more. All screenings will be at 7:00 p.m. and free to viewers.
If you can’t make it to a live film screening or want to watch at your own pace, don’t worry. Films are available to watch up to four days after their screen date through Eventive, so you won’t miss out on viewing.
Screening: Duty Free
Join us on Tuesday, November 9 at 7:00 p.m. for Duty Free (2020), followed by a Q&A with filmmakers on Wednesday, November 10 at 7:00 p.m.
After a 75-year-old immigrant mother gets fired without cause from her lifelong job as a hotel housekeeper, her son takes her on a bucket-list adventure to reclaim her life. As she struggles to find work, he documents a journey that uncovers the economic insecurity shaping not only her future, but that of an entire generation.
