It premiered in documentary competition at the SXSW 2021.

Rain plan: Please note that though our weekly film screenings are “ticketed” events, the back up rain venues are more limited in capacity than our outdoor venues. Seating at rain venues is not guaranteed and you will be seated on a first come, first served basis. We will notify all RSVP’d guests of venue change via email by 1:00 PM on the day of the film event. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience.
