An inspiring feature film based on the true story of Virginia Walden Ford's tireless work to bring educational opportunities to the children of Washington, DC.

Join the Moving Picture Institute as it screens its newly released feature film Miss Virginia. The film stars Emmy® winner Uzo Aduba ("Orange Is the New Black") as a struggling single mother who is losing her fifteen-year-old son to the rough streets of Washington, DC. Unwilling to see him drop out and deal drugs, she places him in a private school. But when she can’t afford tuition, she launches a movement to change the system that is destroying him and thousands like him. Attacked and threatened by those who don’t want change—from corrupt politicians to the local drug lord—Virginia must discover depths of strength she never knew she had. A discussion will follow the screening on how to empower parents to advocate for change in their local communities.
