Join KCTS 9 and Community Cinema for a free, exclusive pre-screening of Welcome to the Shelbyville at the Frye Art Museum in Seattle.

Change has come to rural Tennessee! Set in the heart of America’s Bible Belt, Welcome to Shelbyville focuses on a small Southern town as they grapple with rapid demographic change and issues of immigrant integration. The film captures the complexity of the African American, Latino, white, and Somali subjects as their lives intertwine against the backdrop of a crumbling economy and the election of a new president.

Elliott Bronstein of theSeattle Office for Civil Rights will lead an audience discussion following the film to explore racial and immigration topics in Seattle and how they relate to the subjects of the film and how Shelbyville, TN is like Seattle, WA.
