FIRST Fri Spiritual Cinema + Art Reception - Nov. 2

Usually we show films on the Second Friday, but this FIRST Friday we will be showing the documentary FAMBUL TOK at 7:30. Shorts at 7PM.

And before that, starting at 5:30, an artist's reception downstairs in Friendship Hall - Frank Gubernat's paintings, "Our Western Scene as I See It.)

Victims and perpetrators of Sierra Leone’s brutal civil war come together for the first time in an unprecedented program of tradition-based truth-telling and forgiveness ceremonies. Through reviving their ancient practice of fambul tok (family talk), Sierra Leoneans are building sustainable peace at the grass-roots level – succeeding where the international community’s post-conflict efforts failed.

Filled with lessons for the West, the award-winning film FAMBUL TOK explores the depths of a culture that believes that true justice lies in redemption and healing for individuals – and that forgiveness is the surest path to restoring dignity and building strong communities.

Following the film, a discussion will be facilitated by Linda Mills, who has trained extensively in Nonviolent Communication/Compassionate Communication and teaches and coaches groups and individuals on how to communicate in difficult situations without giving up or giving in and without blaming others.
