'The Area' documentary is a five-year odyssey of a South Side Chicago neighborhood, where more than 400 African-American families are being displaced by a multi-billion-dollar freight company. The film follows homeowner-turned-activist Deborah Payne, who vows to be “the last house standing,” and the RowRow Boys, teen friends who must start a new life across gang lines.

This is the world premiere of the film. Director David Schalliol, editor/producer Brian Ashby, and protagonist Deborah Payne will be in attendance!

Time: 7:20 p.m.
Date: Friday April 6, 2018
