Part of the NPT co-presented ITVS Community Cinema Nashville series, we screened the Independent Lens documentary “Welcome to Shelbyville” last week at the downtown Nashville Public Library. The film examines a community, 60 miles from Nashville, struggling in an economic downtown with a burgeoning immigrant population. A panel discussion followed with director Kim Snyder and principals from the documentary. Nashville City Paper editor Stephen George moderated.
Thanks to the Nashville Public Library for capturing the video.
“Welcome to Shelbyville” airs on NPT and PBS stations nationwide on Tuesday, May 24 at 9:00 p.m. CDT.
