17 Blocks


The 2019 IDA Documentary Screening Series brings this year’s most acclaimed documentaries to industry insiders and film lovers as a series of curated film screenings through the fall season!

Join in on a screening of ‘17 Blocks’ on Wednesday 9/18 at the Landmark Theater at 7:30PM.

In 1999, nine-year-old Emmanuel Sanford-Durant and his family began filming their daily lives in America’s most dangerous neighborhood — just 17 blocks behind the U.S. Capitol. A unique collaboration with filmmaker and journalist Davy Rothbart, spanning two decades, ‘17 Blocks’ illuminates a nation’s ongoing crisis through one family’s raw, stirring, and deeply personal saga.

The screening will be followed by a moderated post-film discussion with Director and Emmy-winning filmmaker, Davy Rothbart.
