IFF presents new Davis Guggenheim film (free screening and Q&A)

Location: The Avon

The Ivy Film Festival is excited to kick off its event-filled week with a pre-release screening of Paramount’s newest, and hugely talked about, film from Davis Guggenheim (director, Academy Award-winning An Inconvenient Truth), followed by a Q&A with Davis Guggenheim himself.

The film has generated a great deal of buzz since its screening at Sundance in January. Join us after the screening for a conversation with Davis Guggenheim about his enormously influential filmmaking and his newest cause: the public school system.

Winner of the Audience Award for Best Documentary at Sundance Film Festival, the documentary that critics have called “exhilarating,” “heartbreaking” and “righteous” is a provocative examination of the crisis of public education in the United States told through multiple interlocking stories—from a handful of students and their families whose futures hang in the balance, to the educators and reformers trying to find real and lasting solutions within a broken system.
