FAMBUL TOK - Second Friday Spiritual Cinema

Due to the hurricane, our November film has been rescheduled for this Friday -Dec. 14. 7 PM shorts and 7:30 the powerful documentary FAMBUL TOK

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.

NOT RECOMMENDED FOR CHILDREN UNDER 16. PLEASE NOTE THAT ALTHOUGH HORRIFIC EVENTS ARE DISCUSSED, NO VIOLENCE IS ACTUALLY SHOWN.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
