"Divided We Fall: Americans in the Aftermath"
Wednesday, April 11th, 2012

Two showings: Noon (104 Allen House) and 7:30 PM (Living/Learning Commons - Room 216)
The film will be screened partially followed by a discussion on themes.

About the film: A powerful film that speaks to the forces unleashed in a time of national crisis–racism and religion, fear and forgiveness. Winner of more than a dozen international awards, the film has been celebrated as “a starting point for the new dialogue on race and religion that is essential to America’s future” (Diana L. Eck, Professor of Comparative Religion and Indian Studies at Harvard University and director of The Pluralism Project). As we celebrate the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, it is clear that the take-home message in the aftermath, still has much relevance today.

About the  Social Justice Film Series: Brought to you by the Center for Cultural Pluralism, the Spring 2012 Social Justice Film Series theme is 'Conversations at the Crossroads' and offers participants an educational opportunity to explore through film and subsequent discourse and engage issues of identity in its various forms, visible and invisible. Films selected for the Social Justice Film Series have two viewings and are generally screened up to a half hour and followed by an engaged discourse on the themes by the participants. To be respectful of your time, it is our hope that this entire educational program does not exceed ninety minutes.
