A Town Called Victoria

Marketplace Cinema 2095 Peters Creek Pkwy, Winston Salem, NC, United States

The 2023-2024 Indie Lens Pop-Up lineup launches with the first film screening of the series, “A Town Called Victoria.” Following the film screening, leaders in the Triad Muslim community will come together in conversation.

Through its roster of five documentary projects this season, Indie Lens Pop-Up will ignite conversations on a range of topics impacting communities around the U.S., including the Muslim American experience, climate gentrification, and race and gender equity in mainstream media. This season’s topics also aim to expand perspectives through deeply personal stories, like what it means to live with Parkinson’s disease, and how the Deaf and hard of hearing community redefine what it means to listen. Each film will make its television debut on Independent Lens, PBS’s award-winning documentary anthology series, and will be available to stream on the PBS App.

The Best of Everything

Marketplace Cinema 2095 Peters Creek Pkwy, Winston Salem, NC, United States

Based on Rona Jaffe’s best-selling novel, “The Best of Everything” follows three young women working for a New York publishing firm.

In addition to Baker, the all-star cast includes Hope Lange, Suzy Parker, Martha Hyer, Robert Evans, Stephen Boyd, Joan Crawford, Brian Aherne, and Louis Jourdan.
