February 9 In Conversation: Ira Madison III
3 PM at Film Streams' Ruth Sokolof Theater

In partnership with Joslyn Art Museum, Film Streams' winter repertory series, This is America, features ten films (below) that complement the spectrum of experiences reflected in Joslyn’s special exhibition 30 Americans.

The series is curated by culture writer Ira Madison III, host of Crooked Media podcast Keep It!, which garners over one million downloads a month. Madison is a television writer (most recently for Netflix's Daybreak) and has been included on The Advocate’s 50 Most Influential LGBTQs In Media and The Root's 100 Most Influential African Americans lists. His work has appeared in GQ, Vulture, Mr. Porter, among others.

Film Streams will host Ira Madison III in conversation at the Ruth Sokolof Theater. Madison will discuss the inspiration for the series as well as his work as a culture writer. The event will be co-moderated by Film Streams Education Director, Diana Martinez, and Karin Campbell, Joslyn's Phil Willson Curator of Contemporary Art.
