The Bullock Texas State History Museum presents Femme Film Fridays: Middle of Nowhere
The Bullock Museum will present a screening and conversation about Middle of Nowhere, directed and written by Ava DuVernay, as part of the Femme Film Fridays series, a film series highlighting the cinematic works of women, both behind and in front of the camera.
When her husband is sentenced to eight years in prison, Ruby drops out of medical school in order to focus on her husband's well-being while he's incarcerated. She struggles to find the courage to remain faithful and supportive as the demands of being a prison wife weigh heavily on her shoulders, leading her on a journey of self-discovery in the process.
There will be a Q&A following the screening with Dr. Lisa B. Thompson, playwright and Associate Professor of African & African Diaspora Studies at UT Austin. Included with tickets is a welcoming reception with a cash bar.
