Join DC Filmmakers Natalie Avery and Kyle Centers for a screening of their documentary short, Out of the Basement followed by question and answer/panel discussion about the issues the film raises.  

The film follows Greg Newby as he embarks on a pro boxing career after a fall from grace. The story delves into DC's boxing subculture and traces its role in the life of one remarkable family struggling to build lives and find meaning in a changing city.
