Indie Lens Pop-up

Indie Lens Pop-Up The 2018 Indie Lens Pop-Up lineup includes six new documentaries that take viewers across the country and through our country’s tumultuous past and present, from a look at the life and influence of musical genius John Coltrane, to an examination of race in America as envisioned by James Baldwin, to the pivotal role of historically black colleges and universities in American history, culture, and identity.

We meet Dolores Huerta, cofounder of the first farm workers unions, and women veterans who have joined together to help other homeless women vets, and gain insight into the changing landscape of rural America in an era of industrial agriculture.
