Fresno Filmworks presents the opening film of its 2019-2020 season, the independent documentary “What You Gonna Do When the World’s on Fire?” at the historic Tower Theatre. A critical favorite at the Venice Film Festival, the international co-production is directed by Italian filmmaker Roberto Minervini, who is known for his disarming portraits of marginalized populations, including his 2015 Cannes breakthrough “The Other Side.” The movie tells the story of a community of Black people in the American South during the summer of 2017, when a string of brutal killings of young African-American men sends shockwaves throughout the country. A quiet but vivid meditation on the state of race in the United States, Minervini captures an intimate portrait of the lives of those who struggle for justice, dignity, and survival in a country that’s not on their side. Assistive listening services are not available for this film. 123 minutes. Not Rated. Advance tickets cost $10 general and $8 for students and seniors, and they can be purchased by check or cash at the Tower Theatre box office, 809 E. Olive Ave. Go online to FresnoFilmworks.org for tickets and details.
