Introducing “Screen/Shot”, our quarterly film screening and discussion series!
Film and cinema have long been conduits of public engagement, communicating stories and perspectives that challenge our own. Screen/Shot is a quarterly film and discussion program hosted by The Listening with Riverviews Artspace, designed to utilize cinema to explore the many ways that the arts have impacted lives.
Toni trains as a boxer with her brother at a community center in Cincinnati’s West End, but becomes fascinated by the dance team that also practices there. Enamored by their strength and confidence, Toni eventually joins the group, eagerly absorbing routines, mastering drills, and even piercing her own ears to fit in. As she discovers the joys of dance and of female camaraderie, she grapples with her individual identity amid her newly defined social sphere.
Following the film will be a brief discussion, facilitated by Ashley Marshall, Executive Director of the Lynchburg YWCA!
