Movies That Matter is a FREE, quarterly film series that highlights important human and civil rights issues. Each event features a film screening, followed by a moderated discussion with special guests. Screenings are held in March, June and September, culminating in December with a special event to commemorate Internal Human Rights Day which is celebrated around the world on December 10.

Coming Up:

Homestretch — NR, 2014, 90 minutes. The Homestretch follows three homeless teens in Chicago as they fight to stay in school , graduate, and build a future. Through haunting images, intimate scenes, and first-person narratives, the teens take us on their journeys of struggle and triumph.
