Join Mark Duplass and filmmakers Davy Rothbart, Cheryl Sanford, and Akil Sanford for the Los Angeles Premiere of their critically acclaimed documentary 17 Blocks.

In 1999, nine-year-old Emmanuel Sanford-Durant and his family began filming their daily lives in America’s most dangerous neighborhood — just 17 blocks behind the U.S. Capitol. They’ve been filming ever since. Spanning two decades, 17 BLOCKS illuminates a nation’s ongoing crisis through one family’s raw, stirring, and deeply personal saga.

Music will precede the screening; afterwards, a lobby reception with food and drinks.  Doors at 6:00 PM; music at 6:30 PM; film starts promptly at 7 PM.
