The Blue Line, a short documentary directed and produced by former Warwick resident Samantha Knowles, will make its Warwick premiere at the Albert Wisner Public Library on June 18 at 6:30 pm. The film first premiered as part of the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival. Samantha will be on hand for a Q & A following the screening. The film, which is part of the New York Times Op-Docs series, chronicles the blue line controversy in Warwick, which began shortly after the blue line was first painted on Railroad Avenue in Warwick. Knowles' film uniquely captures the story from beginning to end and reflects on the effect of the controversy in Warwick.
