Man On Fire Movie Screening
March 1, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
TCU alumnus Chase Sanchez returns to campus with director Joel Fendelman to screen their documentary film Man on Fire and host a Q&A on Thursday 3/1 at 7:00 pm. Free and open to the public, the screening and discussion will take place in Sid Richardson Lecture Hall 4. The film focuses on Grand Saline, Texas, a town east of Dallas, that has a history of racism–a history the community doesn’t talk about. This shroud of secrecy ended when Charles Moore, an elderly white preacher, self-immolated to protest the town’s racism in 2014, shining a spotlight on the town’s dark past. “Man on Fire” untangles the pieces of this protest and questions the racism in Grand Saline today. The film recently won an International Documentary Association (IDA) Award; had its world premiere at the Slamdance Film Festival (which coincides with Sundance Film Festival); and will be featured in the Big Sky Documentary Film Festival and San Luis Obispo Film Festival.
