When arson strikes the local mosque, a Texas town must reckon with its troubled past. A film and conversation with STAND.

The  2023/'24 Indie Lens season of films and community conversations opens with a documentary by Li Lu (director) and Anthony Pedone (producer) about exploring hate.

When the local mosque is burned to the ground in an apparent hate crime, the town of Victoria must overcome its age-old political, racial, and economic divides to find a collective way forward. A Town Called Victoria is a Reel South and Independent Lens co-production.

This film and conversation is a co-presentation by STAND (Steamboat Team Against Antisemitism and Discrimination) and Bud Werner Library.

The three-episode series screens on PBS November 13, 2023 – April 12, 2024.
