Indie Lens Pop-Up film event to feature ‘Stray Dog’

Indie Lens Pop-Up is a neighborhood film screening series that brings people together for community-driven conversations around films from the award-winning PBS series “Independent Lens.”

Formerly known as Community Cinema, the long-running screening series has been re-named Indie Lens Pop-Up and will continue during the 2015/16 season as part of Bud Werner Memorial Library’s programming.

The lineup includes a diverse selection of new documentaries exploring issues from race to gun violence and veterans’ issues to autism.

The season kicks off at 6:30 p.m. Monday in Library Hall with a free screening of “Stray Dog,” by Debra Granik, the director of the Oscar-nominated “Winter’s Bone.”

The film is a portrait of a motorcycle-riding Vietnam veteran Ronnie “Stray Dog” Hall, but there’s more to Hall than meets the eye; behind the tattoos and leather vest is a man dedicated to helping his fellow veterans and immigrant family as he comes to terms with his combat experience.

The community is encouraged to stay for a moderated discussion after the film, with a special invitation to Steamboat Springs’ veterans to attend and be part of the conversation.
