Come out for a night of film and live music! The evening raises awareness through the arts and benefits the Rowland Theatre as it moves into its second centennial!
THE FILM: SPECIAL SCREENING
The Turn Out (2018; USA) is directed by Pearl Gluck, Assistant Professor of Film/Video at Penn State University.
WATCH IT HERE:
The film is a redemption story about an everyday hero, a trucker, who gets involved with a girl who is being trafficked at his truckstop in Southern Appalachia.
Here's the reality: In 2017, 4,687 calls were made to the National Human Trafficking Hotline. 1,980 Calls were made by truckers. Almost half (48.5%) of the cases reported by truckers involved minors. The film asks, can one man stop trafficking? Join us and learn how.
Meet the filmmaker, and talk to truckers and survivors of trafficking after the film, moderated by the Centre County Women's Resource Center.
THE MUSIC: LIVE
Music for the film is composed by our very own local musician, Chris Rattie, who will be performing live with NattyLou Race at the screening. Songs include the signature song for the film, "Heaven Spelled Backwards"
THE THEATRE: MAKE A DIFFERENCE
