‘Price of Safety’ screens at the Marquis

After a one year pandemic necessitated hiatus, Showing Up for Racial Justice Middlebury’s film series is resuming at the Marquis Theater. On Wednesday, Oct. 20, SURJ will show the film “The Price of Safety,” at 4 and 7 p.m.. Each screening will be followed by a Q & A with Vergennes filmmakers, Chris Spencer and Erin Wolcott.

“The Price of Safety” explores national conversations about over-policing and racial bias as they unfold in the small community of Vergennes. The 54-minute documentary braids together footage from archived city council meetings, personal interviews, timelines and drone footage, leaving viewers with an intentionally broad perspective.

This year the funds raised at the SURJ film series will be benefiting two initiatives. One of these is special programming for BIPOC youth at Addison Central Teens.

Suggested donation for attending the film is $10, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
