As many of you know this weekend 3 very powerful documentaries were screened at the Harvard Kennedy School: Sutura: Rape in Senegal, Democracy in Dakar, and The Little Town of Bethlehem. We had a great turn out for both Friday and Saturday night, and some intense and very informative panel discussions after the screening of each documentary. Viewed described the films “very thought provoking,” and shared that they thought there were an “amazing choice of films.”
Thank you to all those who joined us! This coming weekend, get ready to watch two more powerful documentaries; Countdown to Zero, on Friday (Oct. 1st), a film highlighting the hazards and possible dangers of nuclear proliferation:, and a Sneak preview of Cape Wind: The Fight for the Future of Power in America on Saturday (Oct. 2nd), a documentary regarding clean energy sources.
All films will screen at 7pm at the Harvard Kennedy School. See our website at www.bostonfilms.org for film descriptions, schedule, venue, and ticket information. We recommend that you buy your tickets as soon as possible as the seating is limited.
The films will be followed by panel discussions, allowing you to discuss these critical issues and the documentaries in detail with film producers and/or expert guest panelists.
