The film explores the transition from legal slavery in one form, to what DuVernay describes as “modern-day slavery” in another.

Free screening of ‘13th’ with state legislators

HURLEYVILLE, NY — The Cinema at the Hurleyville Arts Centre is offering a free screening of Ava DuVernay’s “13th,” with a pre-screening reception that includes Sen. Jen Metzger and Assemblyperson Aileen Gunther.

The event, March 1, begins at 5 p.m. with a meet and greet, followed by refreshments, a civil rights video montage, a word from the guest speakers—also including Attorney Andrea Ogle—a recitation of Maya Angelou’s “Still I Rise” and the movie at 6:25 p.m.

The film explores the “intersection of race, justice and mass incarceration in the United States” and is titled after the Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, which freed the slaves and prohibited slavery, with the notable exception of slavery as punishment for a crime.
