NPT’s final free Indie Lens Pop-Up event of the season is Thursday, April 11, at Watkins College of Art (2298 Rosa L. Parks Blvd., Nashville TN 37228). Indie Lens Pop-Up, presented by ITVS, Independent Lens, and Nashville Public Television, will present Charm City, a documentary by Marilyn Ness. The event is free, but RSVPs are required at charm-city-npt.eventbrite.com. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and the screening begins at 6 p.m. with a discussion to follow the documentary.
Filmed during three years of unparalleled violence in Baltimore, Charm City delivers a powerfully candid portrait of those on the front lines. With grit, fury, and compassion, a group of police, citizens, community leaders, and government officials grapple with the consequences of violence and try to reclaim their city’s future. Former Nashville resident Katy Chevigny is one of the film’s producers.
Independent Lens airs Mondays at 9 p.m. on NPT.
