Indie Lens Pop-Up: Charm City

Make friends, share stories, and join the conversation. Indie Lens Pop-Up is a neighborhood series that brings people together for film screenings and community-driven conversations.

Featuring documentaries seen on the PBS series Independent Lens, Indie Lens Pop-Up draws local residents, leaders, and organizations together to discuss what matters most, from newsworthy topics to family and relationships.

On April 16 we are screening Charm City.

Filmed during three years of unparalleled violence in Baltimore, Charm City delivers a powerfully candid portrait of those on the frontlines. With grit, fury, and compassion, a group of police, citizens, community leaders, and government officials grapple with the consequences of violence and try to reclaim their city’s future.

Stay after the screening for a panel discussion which will include:

  • Saint Paul Mayor Melvin Carter III
  • Retired Saint Paul Police Officer Melvin Carter Jr.
  • Ramsey County Commissioner Toni Carter
  • Anika Carter Ward, director of the Blue Cross Blue Shield Center for Prevention
  • Alanna Carter Galloway, area vice president CWA local 7250
  • Discussion moderated by Anthony Galloway, executive director of ARTS Us Center for the African Diaspora

The family will explore the relationships they have built in St. Paul neighborhoods that have nurtured the family across generations. And, through public service—policing, county and city government work, union organizing, and education—they have nurtured the city of St. Paul.

This is a free, all ages event. Doors at 6:30 p.m.

*Limited space is available. Tickets do not guarantee entry. Please arrive early to ensure a spot in the audience.
