Free to Ride at the DC Independent Film Festival

February 17, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$12

Premiering at the 2017 DC Independent Film Festival in February, Free To Ride is the first feature-length documentary to be produced by the Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity at The Ohio State University. The film follows the story of a relentless grassroots coalition from across Dayton, Ohio who overcame a suburban contingent opposed to public transit, and the system of checks and balances that allowed justice and reason to prevail. Amid growing economic inequality, Free To Ride shows that peaceful change is possible and underscores the power of a multi-racial collective to protect the civil rights of all.

The film will be shown at the Naval Heritage Center at the United States Naval Memorial, located in Penn Quarter just off Memorial Plaza. Tickets can be purchased for $12 in advance or at the door.
