Tomorrow night, at the Madison Theater, there will be a preview screening of the documentary film, “The Throwaways.” The film follows the story of local filmmaker and ex-felon Ira McKinley, capturing his struggles to turn his life around and transform his inner-city community, all taking place in Albany.
The screening is a one-night fundraising event to support the distribution of this film and will be hosted by co-directors and producers Ira McKinley and Bhawin Suchak, who will also lead a Q+A discussion panel following each showing. It is also an exclusive opportunity to see the documentary before it is submitted to film festivals around the country.
Tickets are available in advance over on Brown Paper tickets and the film will show at 7 and 9:15pm. You can check out more information about the film and its backstory, as it was funded through a Kickstarter campaign over on their website.
