Relax. We don’t mean literally. No, we mean they’ll be there along with TFN in “The Revisionaries.” The critically-acclaimed and award-winning documentary that premiered in theaters last year is making its TV premiere Jan. 28, one week from today. And you also have a chance to help screen the director’s cut of the movie if you organize a group or represent an organization (more on that in a bit).
First, the TV details. “The Revisionaries” will premiere on TV, edited down for length as a one-hour film on PBS’ Independent Lens next Monday. For most people in Texas, the film will air at 9 p.m., but to be on the safe side and to verify on which channel, you should click here to check your local listings.
But if you would rather watch the full version, the director’s cut seen in theaters, TFN can make that happen. Please contact TFN’s outreach director Val Benavidez (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like to set up a screening of the full film in front of a group or an organization.
