A film that I doubt needs an introduction on this site, given how often we've written about and championed it! 

Co-directed by documentary master Ken Burns, with his daughter Sarah Burns, and son-in-law David McMahon, the critically-acclaimed The Central Park Five, finally opens in select theaters this Friday, November 23rd,  in New York, at Maysles Cinema and IFC Center , followed by Los Angeles on November 30th, at Landmark's Nuart Theatre.

A day after you've stuffed your stomachs with turkey, redeem yourselves with a screening of a great film that'll inform, inspire, and more. 

Those who attend the Maysles-sponsored Sunday, November 25, 4pm screening of the film at the Oberia D. Dempsey Center Auditorium on 127 West 127th Street (tickets HERE), will be treated to a post-screening Q&A with the filmmakers (Sarah Burns and David McMahon), and 4 of the 5 members of the Central Park Five (Raymond Santana, Kevin Richardson, Yusef Salaam, Korey Wise).

And 4 attendees of that specific screening will get in for FREE

How? By entering the S&A/Maysles Cinema/Central Park Five screening contest. It's simple.

Maysles has allotted S&A 2 pairs of tickets for this contest, so you can thank them!

To enter, just answer the below question related to the film. The 2 winners will be selected from all the correct submissions, and will each win a pair of tickets (or 4 in total). So both winners each get 2 tickets to that screening. 

The trivia question is, in the interview Tambay did with members of the Central Park Five last week, in a few sentences, how did they say that the entire ordeal has negatively affected their lives today? Read the interview HERE.

Send your answers to obensont@gmail.com with the words "CP5 Tickets" in the subject heading; you have until this Wednesday, the 21st, at 11:59pm EST to submit your answers.

Please make sure that you can attend the SundayNovember 254pm screening of the film at Oberia D. Dempsey Center Auditorium, before entering!

The 2 winners will be announced some time on Thursday. 

Here are its trailer and poster:
