Film Title: Free to Ride
Name of Film Company: Kirwan Institute
Filmscreening Moderator: Glennon Sweeney, Kirwan Institute
Filmscreening Speaker: Matthew Martin, Kirwan Institute  
Description of Film:
Premiering at the 2017 DC Independent Film Festival in February, Free To Ride is the first feature-length documentary to be produced by the Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity. The film follows the story of a relentless grassroots coalition from across Dayton, Ohio who overcame a suburban contingent opposed to public transit, and the system of checks and balances that allowed justice and reason to prevail. Amid growing economic inequality, Free To Ride shows that peaceful change is possible and underscores the power of a multi-racial collective to protect the civil rights of all.
