Go-Go City: Displacement & Protest in Washington, DC Premiere @ Online
Dec 2 @ 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM
Join the Bertelsmann Foundation and DC Shorts for the World Premiere screening of the new documentary film Go-Go City: Displacement & Protest in Washington, DC, on Wednesday, December 2, at 7:00 PM. This virtual screening is FREE and will be followed by a live panel discussion moderated by Pam Nash, DC Shorts Board Member and filmmaker. Please RSVP here.
In the Spring of 2020, protests against racial inequality filled the streets of the nation’s capital for weeks. While injustice in policing sparked the rallies, the issues behind the inequality stem far deeper. For decades, Washington DC has stood as a beacon for Black culture and community, yet a breakneck wave of gentrification threatens to erase this history.
Go-Go City dives into this rich tapestry, exploring the culture and sound of the Washington, DC, as well as the forces of economic and cultural gentrification that stand to mute them. The film interweaves scenes of protest as displaced communities rally around the city’s beloved Go-Go music to retake the streets.
To receive the Zoom link for the virtual screening (50 min) and panel discussion (60 min), please RSVP HERE.
