REEL STORIES

7 p.m., Winthrop Rockefeller Institute, Petit Jean. $10.

Like my homie Derek Jenkins always says, film is a medium made by a lot of people, for a lot of people. So why shouldn’t it be social? Why shouldn’t we discuss/critique/question films together? The Winthrop Rockefeller Institute (part of the University of Arkansas System) agrees. On the fourth Fridays of June, July and August, the institute presents a documentary and then follows the showing with a discussion among the filmmaker, topical experts and the audience. “Uncounted: The New Math of American Elections” kicks off the series this Friday. The film’s director, Emmy award-winner David Earnhart, will be on hand along with regional political experts to discuss the do. Space is limited, so advance registration is recommended. Go to uawri.org to register online. In July, “Spilled Milk: Our Milk, Our Farmers, Our Arkansas” screens. “Who Killed the Electric Car?” closes out the series on Aug. 25. A three-film pass is available for $25.
