Free screening of BEYOND THE MOTOR CITY to feature post-show talk with Director Aaron Woolf


On Wednesday, July 14, director Aaron Woolf will be at Film Streams’ Ruth Sokolof Theater for a very special screening of his PBS documentary BEYOND THE MOTOR CITY. Following the film, Woolf will lead an audience discussion on the future of transit in America – and specifically the future of transit in Omaha.

The screening of BEYOND THE MOTOR CITY is part of a nation-wide tour to raise questions — and seek answers — about the future of transportation in America. City planners, urban growth experts, bike and transit advocates, and concerned citizens in more than 25 cities across the country are part of the BLUEPRINT AMERICA SCREENING TOUR that aims to provoke public attention and energize debate on:

  • New hopes for accessible, clean, and modern mass transit in America
  • The role of cities, and consumers, in shaping the next generation of transportation systems
  • A roadmap for revitalizing the way we move through our cities and neighborhoods

Tickets for the event are FREE and will be available beginning Monday, June 21 at Film Streams’ Ruth Sokolof Theater. The screening is presented by the City of Omaha Planning Department, Environment Omaha, Live Well Omaha Kids, Omaha By Design, and Film Streams.
