Join WXXI for a special FREE screening and discussion of Breaking the News, a film by Heather Courtney, Princess Hairston, Chelsea Hernandez, and Diane M Quon. Frustrated by the lack of representation in the media, a group of women and LGBTQ+ journalists launched The 19th*, a digital news startup whose work is guided by elevating the voices often left out of the American story.
The film will be followed by a panel discussion.
• Moderator: Jasmin Singer of WXXI News
• Panelists TBA.
Please note: Indie Lens Pop-Up screenings are 1-hour in length, edited for broadcast.
