Join us for a very special session of Main Street Culture Series, as we are joined by award-winning filmmaker KAHANE COOPERMAN.
KAHANE will discuss her career, documentary filmmaking, the allure of making a film about kindness during these divisive times, and share stories of making THE ANTIDOTE.
Made in response to the divisive times we are living in, THE ANTIDOTE weaves together stories of kindness, decency, and the power of community in America. It’s about everyday people who make the intentional choice to lift others up, despite fundamentally unkind realities that contradict our founding ideals.
