With Soraya Chemaly, Danielle Citron, Mary Anne Franks and Jamia Wilson. NETIZENS is directed by Cynthia Lowen, the producer/writer of the documentary BULLY, which was released by The Weinstein Company and catalyzed a national movement to stop bullying. With this followup film, Lowen tackles the scourge of internet harassment, including "revenge porn," cyber-stalking, threats of violence, privacy invasions, impersonation and hacking. While law enforcement and tech companies lag far behind the crimes, NETIZENS bears witness as the film’s subjects seek justice on their own terms. The National

These screenings are supported by a robust suite of online tools to equip audiences to protect themselves and prevent harassment.

Indie Flicks: Leave The Bus Through The Broken Window

Friday, Oct 18, 2019 at 8:00 PM - English

In Leave the Bus Through the Broken Window, what starts as a traditional documentary about the Hong Kong art world becomes an intimate and wryly comedic study of loneliness and alienation within an increasingly globalized world. Upon realizing that the film he thought he would make is not going to happen, filmmaker Andrew Hevia turns the camera on himself while continuing to engage with Hong Kong's art community. Shot in a 'first person' style, Leave the Bus Through the Broken Window playfully tweaks the conventions of the introspective genre of auto-fiction, using deadpan humor to explore romance, personal trauma, and culture shock like no other film before it.
