This month we break from our documentary tradition to show "The Public," a fictional independent film directed by Emilio Estevez which tackles the challenges facing those experiencing homelessness and mental illness. When a brutal cold front moves through Cincinnati, emergency shelters fill to capacity. A group of homeless patrons refuses to leave the downtown public library at closing time and an act of civil disobedience turns into a standoff with police. Shown in collaboration with Operation Safe Winter-CoMo. (2018, PG-13, 2 hours)

Stay for our panel discussion after the film! We will be speaking with community leaders and volunteers who work with those experiencing homelessness:

  • Pastor Brad Bryan, Wilkes Boulevard United Methodist Church
  • Dirk Burhans, volunteer with Wilkes Boulevard United Methodist Church & John Brown Mobile Soup Kitchen
  • Renee Maxwell, volunteer with Wilkes Boulevard United Methodist Church
  • Dr. David Webber, retired MU professor of political science, former DBRL library trustee & volunteer with Room at the Inn and Loaves and Fishes
