Grace Lee Boggs is a 98-year old Chinese American writer, activist, and philosopher. This fillm takes the viewer on a journey into the power of ideas and the necessity of imagination and expansive thinking. The film is this month's program in the Culture of Peace and Nonviolence Film Series, sponsored by AFSC, Pace e Bene, NH Peace Action, Temple Beth Jacob, the Concord UU Church, and the UCC Peace with Justice Advocates. Films are free and open to the public with donations welcome.
The next film in the “Examining Modern Life” series, sponsored by the AFSC, is a 2005 documentary that analyzes the development of global events immediately in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, from the perspective of both oil-dependent and oil-abundant regions.
Consider this film a blast from the decade past, shown in 2011 as a reminder of the motives behind invading Iraq and Afghanistan and to refocus attention, now several years later, on questioning our continued involvement in the Middle East.
