Sample cut screenings of Redemption are coming to the East Bay! This winter, we’re giving locals a chance to see Redemption firsthand, and to become a part of the story itself. A 20 minute sample screening of Redemption will be previewed at select local libraries in Oakland and Berkeley. These screenings are far more than just a sample of the footage, however. The events will also feature one of the recyclers featured in the film to share their story and take questions from members of the community.
In addition, those who attend will be invited to take part in the trans-media project of Redemption. The goal of this project is to create an interactive map of Oakland which will combine stories, videos, music, and pictures to create a living map of the city which celebrates its spirit and diversity. This project is supported by the San Francisco Foundation, the Sundance Documentary Film Institute, Cal Humanities, and others.
The event locations and dates are listed below:
November 8th: Berkeley North Library 1170 The Alameda Berkeley, CA 12:45 – 1:45pm
November 13th: West Oakland Library 1801 Adeline Street Oakland, CA 5:30 – 6:30
November 20th: Golden Gate Library 5606 San Pablo Avenue Oakland, CA 94608 6:30 – 7:30
And more coming soon…
