RadioWest and Utah Film Center have partnered to present the best in documentary filmmaking. We talk with established and new directors who are changing the way audiences see the world and then screen their films.

Tuesday, we’re continuing our Through the Lens series with documentary director and editor Pedro Kos. His film Bending the Arc premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, and it tells the story of doctors and activists on the front lines of a global health crisis. It profiles people like Paul Farmer who have to figure out how to heal patients with impossible afflictions in impossible conditions. We’re screening the film Wednesday night in partnership with the Utah Film Center.

Join RadioWest and Utah Film Center Wednesday, May 3rd at 7:00 p.m. for a free screening of BENDING THE ARC. It's at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center in downtown Salt Lake City. Pedro Kos will join us for a Skype Q&A following the film. Get more information and invite your friends through our Facebook event.
