Join WXXI and the Golisano Foundation for a special presentation of Give Me Liberty, an American drama-comedy film.

As part of its Move to Include initiative, WXXI and the Golisano Foundation present Give Me Liberty at the Virtual Little Theatre to watch at your leisure through September 24.

About the film, Give Me Liberty:
Medical transport driver Vic is late, but it’s not his fault. Roads are closed for a protest, and no one else can shuttle his Russian grandfather and émigré friends to a funeral. The new route uproots his scheduled clients, particularly Tracy (Lauren “Lolo” Spencer in a breakout performance), a vibrant young woman in wheelchair. As the day goes from hectic to off-the-rails, their collective ride becomes a hilarious, compassionate, and intersectional portrait of American dreams.
