Screening of The Daily

DailySCR1Make plans to attend the screening of Jacob Carah’s thesis film The Daily. The film explores how changes in the journalism industry are impacting the staff of the Winston-Salem Journal. While the film deals with the hard truths facing those in the industry, it is also a celebration of daily news; sometimes sad, at times surprising, always real.

We will see you at The Garage, 110 W. 7th Street, on Thursday, February 20th.  The doors open at 7 p.m. and the screening starts at 8 p.m.
