Shared Facebook Post from Dyana Winkler

POSTED 9.8.18

WASHINGTON, DC - There is a beautiful overlap that can happen in the world of documentary… where making entertainment and art can also cross over into the world of social and political change. Next Wednesday will be one of those moments. United Skates Documentary will be screening during the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation in front of change makers and politicians from across the country. 10,000 politicians will be gathered at the nations capital… fighting for change and hope in a time when we need it so badly. I’m humbled that
our film will be amongst such great leaders. Come join us if you can!
