Presenting the Pulitzer Center Film Festival “Global Crises, Human Stories”––a week-long celebration of reporting from around the world––featuring feature-length documentary films and shorts by award-winning Pulitzer Center journalists. The festival opens Thursday, (so get your ticket today!!) at 7 pm. with the Washington, DC premiere of “The Abominable Crime,” a film about the deadly consequences of homophobia in Jamaica, and the fight for freedom, security, and understanding. Evening includes a discussion with director Micah Fink and Maurice Tomlinson, whose story is told in the film. This premiere is free but reservations required at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All films present heartbreaking stories of struggle and injustice that rarely receive the attention they deserve––but also stories of hope, redemption and justice in the face of seemingly insurmountable challenges. Buy your ticket today to reserve your seat for this upcoming week!
