THILIposterMaryland Film Festival is pleased to present a special screening of Eugene Jarecki‘s award-winning documentary THE HOUSE I LIVE IN with special guest former Baltimore mayor and General Counsel for Howard University Kurt Schmoke on Thursday, December 13th at 7pm at the MICA Brown Center.

After a more than sold out screening with the Open Society Institute last month, this is your chance to see the full film and also hear Kurt Schmoke be interviewed by WYPR’s Tom Hall after the screening!

This will be the next in the MFF/WYPR “Spotlight Series” showcasing the best new independent film titles with conversations between WYPR host Tom Hall and filmmakers whose movies are being shown over the course of the year by the festival.  The interviews are aired on WYPR’s Maryland Morning the week following the screening.  (Click here for the podcast of Tom Hall‘s interview with Lucy Alibar, screenwriter for 2012 Sundance winner BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD).
