Power Project Screening: Stranded by the State

  • Comfort Station 2579 North Milwaukee Avenue Chicago, IL, 60647 United States (map)

As part of the The POWER Project at Comfort Station Logan Square
Comfort Film Presents:

Liz Kaar's documentary series:

Stranded By the State

A documentary series focusing on the long-term toll the Illinois budget crisis has had on everyday people across the state.

We will screen all episodes of the series with a Q&A/Panel discussion after the screening.
Liz Kaar will be in attendance with panalist TBA.
This series was produced with funding from the Chicago Digital Media Production Fund, a project of The Voqal Fund administered by Chicago Filmmakers and co-produced with In These Times and Kartemquin Films.

Programmed by Raul Benitez and Nando Espinosa Herrera

Suggested Donation: $10. Your donation goes toward supporting the P.O.W.E.R. Grant. No one will be turned away due to lack of funds.

The P.O.W.E.R. Project is a collaborative effort between Comfort Station and the Art Leaders of Color Network (ALCN). Throughout the month of June, the project will host a series of lectures, workshops, self-care exercises, and more in the aim of creating an ‘empowerment hub’ where people inspire each other to engage in a multitude of social justice practices.

Donations collected at each P.O.W.E.R. event, will go toward the P.O.W.E.R. Grant, a fund for participating artists with projects in alignment with the P.O.W.E.R. Project’s vision.
