Opening Night screening followed by discussion with Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady, reception to follow .
On an unassuming corner in Fort Pierce, Florida, it is easy to miss the insidious war that is raging. But on each side of 12th & Delaware, people with opposing views stand locked in a heated battle. On one side of the street sits an abortion clinic. On the other side, a pro-life center often mistaken for the clinic it seeks to shut down. Using a skillful and haunting cinema vérité style that allows viewers to draw their own conclusions, 12th & Delaware examines the daily battles of one of America’s most intractable conflicts. In English and Spanish with English subtitles.
This HBO Documentary Film premieres on HBO August 2.
