The Gene Siskel Film Center is proud to present films and programs that entertain, inform and challenge audiences. Based on lived experiences, the content we put on our screens may impact our individual audiences in different ways. To that end, when possible and appropriate, we include an online content consideration on film and program titles that may include potentially harmful content, depictions or themes. We encourage audiences to also inform themselves on the content of films and programs by reading synopses, watching trailers, and exploring film reviews. If you have questions, concerns or would like to provide feedback, please email Director of Programming Rebecca Fons (firstname.lastname@example.org). Thank you for being part of our effort to make all Film Center audiences feel safe and welcome in our spaces.
Please note that the OSCAR NOMINATED DOCUMENTARY SHORTS program is rated R, and addresses subjects including the Hong Kong protests, Black history, the Holocaust and child hunger.
