"Get in the Way" at 2015 SLIFF
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), November 9, 2015 - The 24th Annual Whitaker St. Louis International Film Festival (SLIFF), continues through November 15. This year, the event includes a free screening of a documentary on the life and career of U.S. Rep. John Lewis.
Get in the Way: The Journey of John Lewis," directed by Kathleen Dowdey, is the first biographical film about the respected legislator and elder statesman.
In 1965, the historic Selma march known as Bloody Sunday was a turning point in the civil-rights movement. Lewis - now a revered U.S. congressman, then a young student - co-led peaceful protesters seeking voting rights for African Americans in the South. Coming face to face with a wall of club-wielding Alabama state troopers, Lewis maintained a steadfast, nonviolent stand. Hours later, televised images of the ensuing assault shocked Americans to the core as they witnessed appalling racial oppression. As a legislator, Lewis continues to practice nonviolence in his unwavering fight for justice.
"Get in the Way" screens twice during SLIFF. Rep. Lewis spoke at the first screening on November 8 at Washington University's Brown Hall Auditorium.
The film will screen again at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, November 14, at the Missouri History Museum. No guests will accompany that show, but the program will also feature the short "Selma: The Bridge to the Ballot," the story of a courageous group of Alabama students and teachers who fought a nonviolent battle to win voting rights for African Americans in the South. This screening is also free, with admission again on a first-come, first-served basis.
"Get in the Way" is part of SLIFF's continuing response to the 2014 events in Ferguson. The fest will again feature a stream of programming entitled Race in America: The Black Experience, which includes nearly 30 screenings. To maximize outreach, about half of those programs are free.
SLIFF overall will screen an unprecedented 447 films: 97 narrative features, 86 documentary features, and 264 shorts. This year's festival has 270 screenings/programs, with 70 countries represented
The fest schedule, ticket and venue information, and a complete list of films (with descriptions) are available at the Cinema St. Louis Web site (www.cinemastlouis.org).
