Robert Gardner’s new film is about a 12-year-old black girl travels south from Harlem to visit her grandparents and becomes involved in a local movement to prevent a nuclear-waste dump from being set up on the site of her grandparents’ church. Already torn between the traditionalism of her father (a church deacon) and her activist mother, she finds in this new struggle a way to resolve the opposing ideologies of her parents (1987). A Chicago premiere; Gardner will be present after the 8:00 pm show to discuss his work.
