Reel Talks: Short Term 12 with Ben Tierney


MATRIX:MIDLAND enriches lives through the celebration of art, science and the humanities. Presenting fresh ideas that are both inspiring and thought provoking. In that spirit we are introducing MATRIX: VIRTUAL Cinema Discussions. With discussions occurring every other week, be ready to dive right in at 7:30 PM. The event is free but registration is required. 

Wednesday, October 21, 2020 | 7:30 PM
Rated R; 1 hour 36 min
Title: Short Term 12 (2013)
Hosted by: Ben Tierney

Why Ben selected this film:  While the tone and subject of this low-budget indie film are very serious, there are enough lighthearted moments to balance it out. Powerful performances across the board shed light on the difficult topic of abuse in several raw and emotional scenes. You may want to substitute the popcorn with tissues – it’s the only movie that’s ever made me shed a tear!

Here’s how you can be a part of the discussion:

  • This is NOT a Live Stream viewing of the film. The film can be found  on Amazon Prime and Google Play . Watch the film on your own time, at your pace, prior to our discussion on October 21.
  • Register for the discussion(s) you would like to join. The event is free but registration is required. The registration deadline is 7 PM on the day of the discussion.
  • Connect with people from around the region and enjoy some Reel Talk!


Registration will close at 7 PM on Wednesday, October 21.  The Zoom link will be sent to the registrants by 7:15 PM that evening, for the discussion to begin promptly at 7:30 PM.
