Film on poverty to be screened

The newest film from Emmy Award-winning writer and producer Linda Midgett is coming to Dunkirk. As part of a broader campaign to bring light to the new faces of poverty and the aftermath of the recession, national Christian non-profit Sojourners has produced a documentary film called “The Line.” The 30-minute film uncovers the emerging and entrenched faces of poverty in the United States – such as the suburban former banker, who now relies on a food pantry; to an aging career fisherman, whose shrimping business has been devastated by the after-effects of Hurricane Katrina and the BP oil spill in the Gulf Coast.

“The Line” will be shown at the SUNY Fredonia Incubator, 214 Central Ave., Dunkirk, on Thursday at 7 p.m.

There is no charge for attendance and no reservation is needed. This film is sponsored by the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Northern Chautauqua Social Action Ministry.
