Screening of "The Uncomfortable Truth" with Westphal Film & Television, Black Westphal and DU Bass

Thursday, February 25, 2021

6:30 PM-9:00 PM

Arranged as part of a collaboration between the Westphal Film & Television program, Black Westphal and DU Bass, this film screening program seeks to establish a conversation for BIPOC people using film to tell their stories. We aim to empower and educate students with the knowledge necessary to unpack what they see and challenge the often-negative representation of BIPOC in the media.

This Film Series is expected to take place over the course of several months encompassing a total of 4 films as part of the 1st series. The first event is scheduled to take place during the last week of February, the 25th on Thursday night at 6:30 PM and go until about 9PM. The even would be replicated on Thursdays once a month moving forward through the end of the 2020-2021 academic year.

The Uncomfortable Truth (Run Time 1hr 25min) will screen on February 25, 2021 at 6:30 PM. If you are interested in attending, please contact Karla Roberts at
