Film screening of "January 6th" (150 mn) followed by a Q&A with directors Gédéon and Jules Naudet

Emmy and Peabody winning directors Gédéon and Jules Naudet (“9/11,” “November 13: Attack on Paris,” “The Presidents Gatekeepers”) examine January 6th from the unique perspective of the heroes, first responders, and survivors of the attack. It’s an apolitical story of resilience and bravery that features Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the DC Police Chief, Congresswoman Liz Cheney, and over 50 Senators, Representatives, staffers from both sides of the aisle, and police officers as they reveal their first-hand experience of the attack. It is the only documentary for which the Capitol and Metropolitan Police Departments granted full access to their officers. No documentary has so extensively used never-before-seen footage from both outside and inside the Capitol during the attack, accessing images from independent, professional, and amateur filmmakers.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with directors Gédéon and Jules Naudet.
