Selma at FilmScene Iowa City

January 17 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

- Free

FilmScene presents a free showing of Selma at The Chauncey. This is a FilmScene Community Collaborations event presented by GreenState Credit Union.

About Selma: This is the story of a movement. The film chronicles the tumultuous three-month period in 1965, when Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (David Oyelowo) led a dangerous campaign to secure equal voting rights in the face of violent opposition. The epic march from Selma to Montgomery culminated in President Johnson signing the Voting Rights Act of 1965, one of the most significant victories for the civil rights movement. Director Ava DuVernay’s Selma tells the real story of how the revered leader and visionary Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his brothers and sisters in the movement prompted change that forever altered history.
