It's one thing to get your film into a theatre. It's quite another to have it screened at the United Nations.
"Slavery By Another Name," executive produced by Twin Cities Public Television's Catherine Allan, will be shown Wednesday night at the UN as part of events observing the International Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade.
Director Sam Pollard will be part of a panel discussion following the film. The production, based on the book by Pultizer-prize winning author Douglas Blackmon, aired on PBS nationwide earlier this year.
