Cinema of Urgency

Join us each month leading up to the 2016 election, from March through October, for free screenings and conversations about some of the most important topics of our time.

Responding to the tumultuous climate in contemporary American politics, the Cinema of Urgency series features films posing critical questions about today’s most pressing social, political, environmental, and economic issues. Each screening is followed by a discussion with filmmakers, local community leaders, and other guest speakers.

The Walker’s Cinema of Urgency series is programmed in partnership with Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, an annual event in Durham, North Carolina, dedicated to the presentation of contemporary nonfiction cinema.

Screening Schedule

All films are free and screen in the Walker Cinema on the third Thursday of each month (except in June).
