premieres in Chicago

 

FCHC Productions is hosting a free screening of the neo-noir short film Lakeshore Drive at The 400 Theater on September 23, 2017.

 

Lakeshore Drive is a powerful Chicago story that deals with marginalized citizens and abuse of power. During a routine rideshare experience, the driver discovers his passenger is a transgender acquaintance from high school who is escaping the dark world of prostitution. When her pimp – a crooked cop – demands to know her whereabouts, the driver is forced to choose between her life or his own.

 

According to the Human Rights Campaign, 16 transgender people in the United States have been killed in 2017, many of them women of color. This follows 22 deaths in 2016, the highest ever recorded. Lakeshore Drive explores the intersection of sexual and racial violence, and how it impacts the minority community in Chicago.

 

The screening at The 400 Theater is the first public screening of Lakeshore Drive before reaching the festival circuit. It is free and open to the public. The film stars Darren Smith, Francis Kondorf, and Lila Star, and is directed by Peter Bowse.

 

Screening Date: September 23, 2017

Screening Time: 2:00 PM

Screening Location: 6746 N Sheridan Rd, Chicago, IL 60626

 

This event is free and open to the public.
