Free screenings of extraordinary documentaries from Independent Lens

KET partners with LexArts, the Louisville Film society, and ITVS, the producer of the PBS series Independent Lens, to bring Community Cinema to Kentucky. This free monthly screening series shows films on topical issues from the Independent Lens series.

Community Cinema is active in more than 95 cities nationwide. Kentucky locations are Lexington and Louisville. To fulfill the goal of the project—for public TV stations to work with organizations and community members to encourage dialogue on important social issues—each screening will be followed by a panel discussion.


A formidable figure, standing at 5'8" and weighing over 300 pounds, Cheryl Haworth struggles to defend her champion status as her lifetime weightlifting career inches towards its inevitable end. Strong! chronicles her journey and the challenges this unusual elite athlete faces, exploring popular notions of power, strength, beauty, and health.
