VP Debate Watch Party
Wednesday, October 7, 2020, 7:00 p.m.
Join us at the Queens Drive-In for a FREE drive-in watch party of the 2020 Vice Presidential debate! Before Mike Pence and Kamala Harris take the stage, we will host a pre-debate program that highlights the voices of filmmakers whose documentaries speak directly to our political moment and the issues at stake in the 2020 campaign including healthcare, voting rights, climate change, gun control, and the Supreme Court.
In Conversation: Dawn Porter & Liz Garbus
AMC Networks with Rooftop Films and The Meteor present a special virtual pre-debate conversation between award-winning documentary filmmaker Dawn Porter, whose work has appeared on national and global platforms including HBO, PBS, Discovery, and Netflix (including John Lewis: Good Trouble and The Way I See It), and two-time Oscar nominee, two-time Emmy® winner, Peabody winner, Grammy® nominee, and DGA-nominated director Liz Garbus (most recently co-directing voter suppression documentary All In: The Fight for Democracy with Lisa Cortés).
