Jan. 11: Screening of '13th'


Ava DuVernay’s stirring documentary takes its title from the 13th Amendment, which abolished slavery yet included a clause that laid the foundation for the long history of racial inequality in America’s prison industrial complex. Picking up the mantle of Michelle Alexander’s book "The New Jim Crow," the film traces these staggering prison statistics in what Manohla Dargis calls a “powerful cinematic call to conscience.” (2016, dir. Ava DuVernay, 100 min.)

The documentary screens at 7:30 p.m. in the Billy Wilder Theater. Admission is free, but tickets are required and available at the box office one hour before the event. General admission tickets are available one per person on a first come, first served basis following member ticketing. Early arrival is recommended. Food and drink may not be carried into the Billy Wilder Theater. Read the museum's food, bag check and photo policies
