Each year, the AFI DOCS Charles Guggenheim Symposium honors a master documentary filmmaker and celebrates their work. AFI is proud to welcome the remarkable, Academy Award-nominated Steve James to Washington, DC, as the 2018 Guggenheim honoree. The Symposium will pay tribute to this unique and socially committed filmmaker with an onstage discussion of his career, clips from his films and a screening of episode one of his STARZ docuseries, AMERICA TO ME. The Symposium will be moderated by Michael Phillips, film critic of the Chicago Tribune.

About AMERICA TO ME: In this miniseries, Steve James returns to the subjects that have marked his career – class, race, and how the two affect social and economic mobility.
