Documentary 'THE LINE' showing at Ida Rupp

The newest film from Emmy Award-winning writer and producer Linda Midgett is coming to Ida Rupp Public Library in Port Clinton on May 30 at 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. As part of a broader campaign to bring light to the new faces of poverty and the aftermath of the recession, national Christian non-profit Sojourners has produced a documentary film called The Line. The 30-minute film uncovers the emerging and entrenched faces of poverty in our country — such as the suburban former banker, who now relies on a food pantry; to an aging career fisherman, whose shrimping business has been devastated by the after-effects of Hurricane Katrina and the BP oil spill in the Gulf Coast. 

This special event is being shown in the morning and evening. A discussion about how we can help our own community follows the screening.  Refreshments will be served.  Donations to the Food Pantry accepted during the event.
