An Emmanuel Current Affairs Event
Screening of the HBO documentary film, "Requiem for the Dead: American Spring 2014"
Thursday, April 21, 2016, SHACK room, 7 pm
Access to the movie is being provided by Gary Scott. Amy Kremer will moderate the discussion.
This documentary movie presents footage from Facebook, Twitter and other social media, 911 calls and police file material, to put a human face on some of the estimated 8,000 individuals who died as a result of gun violence in America from March - June 2014. After the movie, those who attend will have an opportunity for discussion. Whatever your viewpoint on this part of American life, this movie provides context for what we might do to reduce gun violence deaths in the United States.
A note of caution: This film contains content and crime-scene images that some - especially survivors of gun violence - may find disturbing. It should not be viewed by children under the age of 14 without adult supervision.
