Where: Music Box Theatre, 3733 N. Southport Ave., Chicago, IL
When: Monday, March 21, 2016 — 7:00 pm
Admission: Free

Filming police is legal in all 50 states – but numerous people have been arrested while doing so.

The third episode of Rights Lab, a cross-genre web series using cinema verite techniques to explore the most pressing civil liberties questions of our day, explains the discrepancy between the law and what happens on the ground, with the help of performance artists Ricardo Gamboa and Steven Beaudion.

Along with a screening of the Rights Lab episode, the event will include a video from Media Burn Archive documenting a clash between police and demonstrators at Cabrini-Green Homes in 1981, shot by Tom Finerty and Tom Weinberg. It will be followed by a panel discussion led by Beckie Stocchetti of Kartemquin Films with performance artist Ricardo Gamboa, civil rights lawyer Jerry Boyle and documentarian Tom Weinberg.

For more information, check out the Facebook invite and learn more about Rights Lab on Scrappers Film Group’s website.

Below is a sneak peak of the video we’re going to be showing.
