Tony Robinson Video Screening

YGB raising awareness and building community

Tony Robinson Video Screening

May 25, 6:30-8:45pm

Madison's Central Library, Rooms 301/302

On May 25th, join LakeFrontRow to watch the Madison-area premiere of "19, The Tony Robinson Shooting: A Case of Deadly Bias", brought to you by director Tim Poehlmann-Tynan. This film analyzes forensic evidence and Madison Police Department audio/video recording to push back against the conflicting narratives of the unjustified shooting of Tony Robinson.

According to LakeFrontRow Cinema, "against an overwhelming soundtrack of newsreel audio and hip-hop, 19 is an uncompromising exorcism of Madison's relationships with race and violence. But it's also a humanizing document in search of justice, truth and love. While moving images all on their own, footage of city-wide protests and candlelight vigils also buttress the importance of Robinson as a young man, as person of color, and as human."

Following the moving and educational film, a panel will be held with the director as well as WI State Representative Chris Taylor and YGB's Brandi Grayson.
