DIRECT CURRENT kicks off with a special screening of Ava DuVernay’s Oscar®-nominated documentary 13th, with Jason Moran’s powerful score performed live for the first time in collaboration with One Woman, One Vote 2020 Festival. Named for the 13th Amendment—which abolished slavery but permitted involuntary servitude as punishment for a crime—13th is an in-depth investigation of the U.S. prison system’s role in our national history of racial injustice. Stay for a post-show discussion with director/writer/producer Ava DuVernay.
