Films on 43
Here at “films on 43” we are not just about watching films, we also bring in community groups to discuss the issues raised by the documentaries. This is not just a project of passively watching films, it’s also about education to take action, whether collectively or as individuals.
The film screenings are always followed by a facilitated discussion with members of the community who are engaged in issues that relate to the film screening.
6:00-8:00PM @ [WLLC]
WLLC will host the first of three "Films on 43" events being planned by a team from WLLC, Emmanuel Presbyterian Church, and The Unity Center. On Friday, January 20, a simple soup supper and table conversation will be offered before a viewing of the first video. The focus will be families seeking refuge. The video is a portion of "Exodus" from PBS Frontline: "The first-person stories of refugees and migrants fleeing war, persecution and hardship — drawing on footage filmed by the families themselves as they leave their homes on dangerous journeys in search of safety and refuge in Europe." The video will form the backdrop for conversation about "sanctuary" and family safety in our community. All ages are welcome. If you need childcare for preschool and grade school children during the screening, please contact the church officeby January 17. RSVPs for the meal are welcome too! Dates for future events: March 10, 6:00-8:00 pm at Emmanuel Presbyterian and May 12, 6:00-8:00 pm at The Unity Center.
