Community Film Series

KIXE PBS announced today the launch of the new season of Indie Lens Pop-Up, the community screening series that brings people together for community-driven conversations around Independent Lens documentaries.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the screening series will evolve to only virtual events using its digital viewing platform OVEE. Attendees will watch the film together, and comment via text chat during the program. Each film will be followed by a moderated discussion led by Myriam Kalmogho, featuring local topic experts and thought leaders.

Partners for the 2021 season include the Shasta College Foundation, ITVS, The Beloved Community, Shasta and Butte County Libraries, and the CSU Chico Office of Diversity and Inclusion.

Each month, participants will be entered in a drawing to win a $25 gift certificate.

The Donut King By Alice Gu

Thursday, May 19th at 4:00PM RSVP 

The Donut King is Ted Ngoy's rags to riches story of a refugee escaping Cambodia, arriving in America in 1975, and building an unlikely multi-million dollar empire baking America’s favorite pastry, the donut. Ngoy sponsored hundreds of visas for incoming refugees and helped them get on their feet teaching them the ways of the donut business. By 1979, he was living the American Dream—but a great rise often comes with a great fall.
