Rev. Alex Gee of the Nehemiah Center speaks in footage from "Forward: Anger Into Action."

Well before a Madison Police Department officer killed unarmed, biracial Madison resident Tony Robinson in March 2015, a crew of Wisconsin-based and -raised filmmakers—Joseph Brown, Sheba McCants, Jamie Quam, and Jonathon Leslie-Quam—were beginning to examine racial disparities and tensions in Madison. In the time since, they've continued to chronicle the efforts of activists trying to push Madison to have a real conversation about race and accept the need for substantial chance. Their documentary, Forward: Anger Into Action, still hasn't officially been released, but at this event the filmmakers will share the current cut of the film and hold an in-person feedback discussion with audience members. —Scott Gordon
