EBPCO Presents: 1200 Miles to Tucson
a benefit screening for Kids In Need of Defense

Last November EBPCO member Erik Mathy rode a bicycle from San Francisco to Tucson along an 1800's wagon route with an old film camera and hand made lens as a combined photojournalism project and fundraiser for Kids In Need of Defense.

With social media wreaking havoc on our political discourse, Erik wanted to talk to people in person about what's going on in the world today, to see if real conversations are still possible. He interviewed an immigration lawyer, US Border Patrol agents, artists, members of indigenous tribes and others to see what they had to say.

What also happened was that Adobe sent along a film crew to make a short documentary on the trip. The short documentary has turned into a 1 hour feature film.

Join EBPCO for a special screening of this film at the wonderful New Parkway Theatre in Oakland, CA. 100% of ticket sales will benefit Kids In Need of Defense.
