3rd Goal Film Night - NorCal Peace Corps Association

  • Feb 25, 2014 · 7:30 PM
  • Delancey Street Foundation

The Northern California Peace Corps Association is hosting the Third Goal Film Night on Tuesday, Feb 25th. Peace Corps’s three goals include:
1. To help the people of interested countries in meeting their need for trained men and women
2. To help promote a better understanding of Americans on the part of the peoples served
3. To help promote a better understanding of other peoples on the part of Americans

So the Third Goal is about educating Americans about the foreign cultures that Peace Corps Volunteers experienced while working abroad. These films focus on Peace Corps service, RPCV development projects, and women's empowerment in the developing world. All of the films were shot in various Peace Corps countries around the world.

We are charging a five dollar entry fee for this event to raise funds for the Northern California Peace Corps Association Grants Program.

The Third-Goal Film Night runs from 7:30-9:30pm, at the Delancey Street Foundation Screening Room – 600 Embarcadero at Brannan St (near the baseball park). The film night includes 20 minute excerpts from all 3 films, plus a 1 hour Q&A with the filmmakers.

Films include:

27 Months
This independent film documents the personal journeys of three Peace Corps volunteers in Azerbaijan, Liberia and the Philippines over their 27 months of service.

Posh Corps
Posh Corps is a documentary that focuses on the lives of Peace Corps Volunteers in South Africa. South Africa is one of the most modern countries in which Peace Corps Volunteers serve. Through the eyes of volunteers in South Africa, we discover a unique glimpse into the future. As the third-world slowly becomes the first-world, the struggles of Peace Corps Volunteers in South Africa provide a window into the struggles of volunteers throughout the developing world.

The Way Back To Yarasquin
The story of one woman's journey to reconnect with her native origins and the unexpected path that changed a whole community through the local commodity: coffee. An inspirational story of overcoming personal struggles to create a better world for others.
This film features members of the Northern California Peace Corps Association.

    Hey everyone, thanks to those of you who came. I didn't really get a chance to see anyone who was there for the meetup, so if you didn't meet anyone else, my apologies. I hope you enjoyed these films, and will catch Posh Corps and 27 Months in full when they are released. I'll be hosting another meetup in the next few weeks - probably Omar and/or The Rocket. Stay tuned to Meetup for more.

    If anyone's interested in getting dinner beforehand, I'm planning to grab dinner at the Delancey Street Restaurant (same address). If you'd like to join me, just comment on this thread, so I know how big a table to request. Otherwise, meet us in front of where they're taking tickets. I'm a balding white guy in my mid-30s, wearing khaki pants and a navy blue button-up shirt.

      It looks as though tickets are not available. Is the event sold out?

      No, I think they just stopped advance sales. You can still buy tickets at the door.
