This Wednesday at the A2 Library

A former member
Post #: 2
This is, of course, short notice to suggest as a formal get together, but the main library (at 343 S. Fifth) is showing a documentary this Wednesday at 7:00 that I thought others might want to know about. Here's the info posted on their website:

Wednesday August 17, 2005: 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm -- Downtown Library Multi-Purpose Room

This moving and important film chronicles the turmoil in predominately white Lewiston, Maine when former Somali refugees relocate there in the wake of the 9/11 tragedy. Controversy erupts when the mayor sends an open letter to the 1,100 newly arrived refugees advising them that the city's resources are strained to the limit and asking other Somalis not to move to the city. The result is a crossfire of emotions and events. The film is not rated.

"The Letter," written and directed by Ziad Hamzeh, was chosen as the opening night feature film at the 2004 Amnesty International Film Festival. It has received numerous awards, including the 2004 award from the Boston Film Festival for Best Documentary. It was called "revealing and harrowing" by the Christian Science Monitor and "a documentary thrill ride...more harrowing because it's true" by the New York Post.

And here's a link to the film's webpage:
The Letter

I plan to be there.
