On January 19, THE AREA made its broadcast premiere on the PBS/World Channel’s documentary film series America ReFramed. The broadcast is a co-presentation with Illinois Public Media’s Reel Midwest.

This special hour-long version of the film focuses on Deborah Payne and her neighbors’ fight for respect.

Check your local listings for when the film airs in your area, or watch online on America ReFramed’s website and the PBS app any time through April 26th.

During January, Chicago residents had five opportunities to watch the film on television via WTTW World and WTTW Create, and more opportunities are coming soon.
