Painted Bride Art Center presents a screening of the recently released documentary BaddDDD Sonia Sanchez, as part of the ongoing Center-funded Re-PLACE-ing Philadelphia project. Created by Barbara Attie, Janet Goldwater, and Sabrina Schmidt Gordon, the documentary profiles the poet, scholar, activist, and Pew Fellow (1993) Sonia Sanchez. The screening will be introduced by Philadelphia performance poets Pat McLean and Debra Powell-Wright, and will be followed by a discussion with the film's creators.

Built on a foundation of public dialogue and interaction, Re-PLACE-ing Philadelphia uses art as a lens for viewing the city and its history. The 20-month project presents a series of performances, artworks, lectures, readings, and conversations that respond to the city and create forums for new ideas.
