The Public

The Riverside Saginaw Film Festival and the Public Libraries of Saginaw present a one-time screening of The Public at the Court Street Theater.

This 2018 film is rated PG-13 and runs 1 hour and 59 minutes.

Following the film, you are invited to a panel discussion about homelessness in the Saginaw community featuring representatives from the Hoyt Library and the Saginaw County Consortium of Homeless Assistance Providers.
