The Silver Screen Series is intended as a gathering place where documentary films can be shown. These films draw on the humanities values of biography, history, culture, and ethics. They are about the stories that define us, connect us with each other, express our values and convey our experiences.
The Silver Screen Series is funded in part by Maryland Humanities and The National Endowment for the Humanities.
