Indie Lens Pop Up and PBS present a pre-screening of The Bad Kids by Keith Fulton and Lou Pepe before it airs on PBS.

Located in an impoverished Mojave Desert community, Black Rock Continuation High School is an alternative for at-risk students with little hope of graduating from a traditional high school. It's their last chance. This coming of age story shows extraordinary educators and talented students combating the crippling effects of poverty.

Indie Lens Pop Up and PBS present a pre-screening of National Bird By Sonia Kennebeck before it airs on PBS.

National Bird follows whistleblowers who, despite possible consequences, are determined to break the silence around one of the most controversial issues of our time: the secret U.S. drone war. The film gives a rare insight through the eyes of both survivors and veterans who suffer from PTSD while plagued by guilt over participating in the killing of faceless people in foreign countries.

Stick around for a lively conversation after the screening.
