Free Show! Sat, Feb 18, at noon in Rhinebeck

Free Show: Ava DuVernay’s “13th”

Ava (Selma) DuVernay traces and connects a troubling series of links between the 13th Amendment abolishing slavery in the U.S. and the tremendous growth of the prison population that is disproportionally comprised of African-Americans.
“By the time her movie ends, Ms. DuVernay has delivered a stirring treatise on the prison industrial complex through a nexus of racism, capitalism, policies and politics. It sounds exhausting, but it’s electrifying.” – Manhola Dargis, NYTimes

About Upstate Films


Upstate Films opened in May of 1972 as a single-screen non-profit cinema staffed by its three founders. We launched our program in 16mm showing an eclectic mix of classic Hollywood and foreign films reflecting a wide-ranging diversity of themes, styles, countries, eras. Soon Upstate began to find and foster an audience interested in supporting an alternative to mainstream cinema. Upstate came of age so to speak along with the “independent” film movement screening sought-after indie features and documentaries along with films that were rarely screened in this country, much less in a semi-rural area. Over the decades, Upstate has shown thousands of films and hosted hundreds of filmmakers and critics, on its way to becoming a critically-acclaimed destination itself. Read more of the story…
