7:30 p.m. Ward Hall Auditorium
Free and open to the public
The Lipscomb University College of Arts and Sciences HumanDocs Film Series, in partnership with ITVS Community Cinema, Nashville Public Television and the Nashville Film Festival, will present the documentary As Goes Janesville, a film centered on the human cost of economic change in Janesville, Wisconsin, after the shuttering of the town's century-old GM plant.
Film director Brad Lichtenstein will be one of the featured panelists at the free screening of the film, which explores the stories of employees displaced by the plant closure as well as Janeville's attempts to re-invent itself, all against the backdrop of Wisconsin governor Scott Walker's efforts to build a business-friendly state.
Other panelists will include Michael Herron, chairman, United Auto Workers Local 1853, Spring Hill, Tenn., and David McCullough, mayor, Cheatham County, Tennessee.
