LEFT TURN 2

"The only way to move forward is together."

HOST A SCREENING

Generate constructive conversation around the issue of racial division and consider what actions you can take to build bridges.

Along with the film, we have put together a step-by-step process and media kit with everything you need to host a screening at your home, workplace, school, church, or community center with a crowd of any size. We recommend viewing this particular film with a diverse audience.

BEHIND THE STORY

Though Left Turn 2 is a fictional narrative, it reflects real circumstances and stories in Evansville.

 

The first step we take when approaching all our films is listening, and because of the delicate subject of this film, we paid special attention to researching Evansville's racially-divided history and interviewing people who are affected by racial injustice today.

The people we interviewed shared personal stories and provide a great example of people who are building bridges in our community. We are grateful for their openness and transparency.

BUILD BRIDGES

Anyone can be a bridge-builder. 

These people are marked with humility, courage, and a hunger to understand. They step forward in transparency and offer an attentive ear. They listen to others without reacting and continually seek the other side of story. 

This might mean intentionally pursuing more diverse relationships. Or perhaps this means beginning a conversation within existing relationships. Whatever it looks like, it is almost certainly a collision of culture, experience, and perspectives that will leave all those involved changed. 

We invite you to step into these moments of chaotic beauty because we know our relationships—and ultimately, our city—will be enriched because of it.
