Event Details

Tacoma Premiere!  Directed by Emmy Award-winning filmmakers Joe and Harry Gantz (Taxicab Confessions, The Defenders), AMERICAN WINTER follows the personal stories of eight families struggling in the wake of the economic downturn. Shot over the winter of 2011-12 in Portland, Oregon, this powerful film reveals the human impact of budget cuts to social services, rising poverty and economic inequality, and the fracturing of the American Dream. The film premiered on HBO in March 2013 and won Best Documentary Award at the Portland International Film Festival. Most recently, AMERICAN WINTER won "Best of the Festival" at the Workers Unite! Film Festival.

Co-director Harry Gantz is our special guest.  YOU ARE INVITED to stay following the film for a reception at Corina Bakery next door to the Grand Cinema, as local experts provide access to resources and talk about how the themes of AMERICAN WINTER are relevant to our community.  

Please note -- Tickets are free; first-come, first-served.  Seating is NOT guaranteed.
