Event Description:

An evening of conversation and film. Join local authors and artists to discuss how evolving threats and fears of the “other” affect art, culture, and community and watch the 1956 film “Storm Center” starring Bette Davis. Food by Bluebeard!

What does it mean when a democracy stops evolving and gets “stuck” in a fearful state? In “Storm Center,” it was the Red Threat, or fear of communism. Today we seem to be stuck in an era of polarization, tribalism, and cynicism. What does that mean for our society? Our neighborhoods and neighbors? Can art lead us out of those stuck places and reignite the wheel of change? 

Join in and hear the thoughts of a diverse panel of creatives representing varied generations, races, genders, and perspectives. 

Spades Park Library has a dedicated parking lot on the east side of the building. There is also ample, free street parking on surrounding streets.

Walk-ins welcome. RSVPs encouraged by Nov. 5.  

Presented by the Indianapolis Film Project, Spades Park Branch Library, Kurt Vonnegut Museum and Library, Big Car Collaborative, and Bluebeard Restaurant.
