Indie Lens Pop-Up Virtual Screenings – Season 2021 / 2022

Indie Lens Pop-Up brings people together for film screenings and community-driven conversations. Featuring documentaries seen on PBS’s Independent Lens, Indie Lens Pop-Up draws local residents, leaders and organizations to discuss what matters most, from newsworthy topics and social issues, to family and community relationships.

Join one of our local partner, the University of Alaska, Anchorage’s Multicultural Center for film screenings that due to COVID-19, will remain virtual for the 2021-2022 season.

All screenings are free and open to the public.

Writing with Fire – March 15

AKPM and UAA are proud to present Writing with Fire. In a male-dominated media landscape, the women journalists of India’s all-female Khabar Lahariya (“News Wave”) newspaper risk it all, including their own safety, to cover the country’s political, social, and local news from a women-powered perspective. From underground network to independent media empire—now with 10 million views on their YouTube site—they defy the odds to redefine power. Join us on Thursday, March 15, at 6 pm for the film and discussion.
