“Activized” is a new documentary from award-winning filmmaker Eric Stange. After making films for PBS for many years, the Arlington resident takes on a more personal project, training his lens on a handful of ordinary Americans who throw themselves into political activism for the first time in their lives. What compels them to do so? ACMi’s James Milan talked to the director to find out.

We are delighted to let you know that you’ll be able to see “Activized” right here on ACMi. It will air regularly throughout the week on our Public channel, starting next week. Look for specific times on the schedule on our website!
