THIRTEEN Screening Series Launches at Bronx Library Center

THIRTEEN’s new screening series at the Bronx Library Center launched on October 7 with a public screening of American Masters – Raúl Juliá: The World’s a Stage. Executive Producer Michael Kantor welcomed guests on behalf of WNET. Following the film screening, the audience enjoyed a conversation between the film’s director/producer Ben DeJesus and Raúl Juliá’s wife, Merel Juliá. The evening closed with a lively and engaging audience Q&A.

THIRTEEN will be at the Bronx Library Center, the largest public library in the Bronx, with a free public screening on the first Monday of every month. Join us on November 4 when we preview Great Performances: Much Ado About Nothing, or in December for ALL ARTS Presents The Hip Hop Nutcracker at NJPAC!

Also in November, a Harlem-based screening series will launch. Each month THIRTEEN will be at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture or Countee Cullen Library sharing impactful public media content.

The Harlem screening series kicks off on November 9 at the Schomburg’s Annual Open House. Guests will enjoy highlights from Freedom to Breathe Tour, the five-part digital series from Peril and Promise. The Open House will also include a segment from Craft in America – Quilts, which features Sugar Hill-based artist Michael Cummings. Cummings’ quilts in the Schomburg’s permanent collection will be on display. Be sure to check it out!
