Full Frame’s Road Show Summer Series continues with ‘Blowin’ Up’

Still from "Blowin' Up," a film part of the Full Frame Road Show series which continues this week.

The Full Frame Documentary Film Festival started its free Road Show Summer Series on June 28 with “Rodents of Unusual Size”and continues this week with “Blowin’ Up.”

The summer series will feature three films at three different locations in the Triangle. Along with “Rodents of Unusual Size” and “Blowin’ Up,” the series finale will be “Inventing Tomorrow.”

“Rodents of Unusual Size” is a story about giant swamp rats invading coastal Louisiana and the defiant people on the edge of the world, who are defending their communities, culture and livelihoods from the onslaught of this curious and unexpected invasive species.

“Blowin’ Up” is a new documentary that looks at human trafficking through the lens of the nation’s first human trafficking intervention court in Queens. Rather than criminalizing sex workers, this court helps them change their lives. This screening will take place July 19 at the Full Frame Theater in Durham.

The Road Show Summer Series comes to a close on August 9 with “Inventing Tomorrow,” a film about passionate teenage innovators from around the globe who are creating cutting-edge solutions to confront the world’s environmental threats.
