Join us for the first time that all four episodes of "City So Real" will be screened!
Over four episodes, Steve James takes an unflinching look at the tumultuous political workings of Chicago. City So Real traverses a broad array of neighborhoods, parades, eateries, and living rooms. James positions the viewer in the midst of the trial of Jason Van Dyke, a Chicago police officer convicted for the murder of Laquan McDonald. He then takes us to the infamous halls of local government during a mayoral race and subsequent runoff election that leads to the victory of Lori Lightfoot, the city’s first openly gay and first African American woman mayor. City So Real is a true testament to the hard-working blue-collar attitude of the beloved Windy City.
In this screening, the complete series will be shown. The total runtime of 240 minutes will include a 15 minute intermission between episodes 2 and 3.
Director Steve James will be present.
