February 7th, 2019 – 6:00pm – 9:00pm
Join us for the screening of Participant Media’s award winning film The Price of Free. The FREE screening, which will begin sharply at 6:30pm, will be followed by a panel discussion and in depth Q & A with the impact team mobilizing around this incredibly moving peak into very real, modern day child labor issues driven by international supply chain demand. A special thank you to Cypress Creek Renewables for opening up the doors to their incredible campus to our community and generously providing light snacks and drinks.
THE PRICE OF FREE premiered at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival, where it won the Grand Jury Prize for Best Documentary. Directed by Derek Doneen and produced by Oscar®-winning filmmaker Davis Guggenheim (AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH; HE NAMED ME MALALA) and Sarah Anthony, the film follows Nobel Peace Laureate Kailash Satyarthi and his team through gripping secret raids and quests for missing children in the hope of ending abject exploitation ruining childhoods. Refusing to be daunted by the impossible, they have succeeded in rescuing over 87,000 children in India and created a global movement which resulted in international legislation to help protect children from the scourge of slavery, trafficking, forced labour, sexual exploitation among other heinous crimes.
There is free parking available onsite in the Cypress Creek Renewables parking lot. It is best to enter via the 34th Street entrance. Please use the front entrance on the 34th Street to access building after 6:00pm.
