Indie Lens Pop-Up: Breaking The News (Free)


Mon 2/26: 7:00pm

FREE SCREENING w/ post film zoom Q&A session with the director, Chelsea Hernandez. Hosting the evening is Sydney Alison, alongside special guest Charity Barton who will moderate the Q&A session.

Who decides which stories get told? A scrappy group of women and LGBTQ+ journalists buck the white male-dominated status quo, banding together to launch The 19th*, a digital news startup aiming to combat misinformation. A story of an America in flux, and the voices often left out of the narrative, the documentary Breaking the News shows change doesn’t come easy.
