Queens Drive-In: VP Debate Watch Party
Presented by AMC Networks and Rooftop Films in partnership with The Meteor
Join us at the Queens Drive-In for a FREE drive-in watch party of the 2020 Vice Presidential debate! Before Mike Pence and Kamala Harris take the stage, we will host a pre-debate program that highlights the voices of filmmakers whose documentaries speak directly to our political moment and the issues at stake in the 2020 campaign including healthcare, voting rights, climate change, gun control, and the Supreme Court.
The program begins with a special preview of the upcoming PBS Frontline documentary, A Thousand Cuts, which follows journalist Maria Ressa as she covers politics and the rise of Rodrigo Duterte in the Philippines. Filmmaker and former IDA Board President Marjan Safinia introduces director Ramona S. Diaz and asks her about documenting the work of journalists in an age of growing hostility towards the press.
Come early and please be sure you are registered to vote (NY state deadline is October 9th) at When We All Vote to Let Your Voice Be Heard. Presented by AMC Networks and Rooftop Films in partnership with The Meteor, New York Hall of Science and Museum of the Moving Image.
