TWO FREE FILM SCREENINGS BACK-TO-BACK!
On Friday, May 3, we'll screen the multi-awardwinning film "Is Anybody Listening?" about the chasms between veterans and nonveterans and a simple, powerful way to bridge them. Veterans who watch the film often say, "THIS is what I want my loved ones—and the nation—to know!" and nonveterans love the film, because they say it humanizes veterans for them and makes them feel connected to them.
Immediately afterward, we'll screen our new award winning documentary, "Isaac Pope: The Spirit of an American Century," which is about 100 years of U.S. history including racism, told through the microcosm of the life of centenarian African-American Isaac Pope, a spellbinding storyteller, activist, and inspiring force. These are pre-events for the 40th Annual Athens Civil Rights Festival, which starts the next day and where Paula J. Caplan will speak a couple of times, including a keynote about civil and human rights, activism, and filmmaking.
