The S Word was honored to have been a part of the Chautauqua Institution’s week of programming entitled Documentary Film as Facilitator: Storytelling, Influence and Civil Discourse.” This theme was explored through Chautauqua’s renowned lecture series, that featured talks by famed documentarian Ken Burns and Washington Post film critic Ann Hornaday. The S Word screened twice during the weeklong festival, held in the picturesque town of Chautauqua in upstate New York. Both post-screening Q&A’s gave Lisa the opportunity to engage with local community leaders and Chautauqua residents alike.
