Nov 8, 2019

And now for the Weekend, today marks the start of Fresno Filmworks' 15th annual Fresno Film Festival at The Tower Theater. The three-day event includes such films as the political documentary Raise Hell, The Life and Times of Molly Ivins about the Texas maverick and national political commentator known for her razor-sharp wit.

And on Sunday afternoon at 1 p.m., viewers can watch five short films with Central Valley connections. In this interview, we hear from filmmaker Elivia Shaw and Dr. Marc Lasher who is the focus of her short film, The Clinic. It's about the free mobile medical clinic Lasher runs in Fresno next to a needle exchange.
