This month we have a special film brought to us by the UU Church’s Twenties and Thirties Community, who have chosen this unique documentary made by young people from the featured tent village along with another young film-maker from Vermont.
We’ll begin the film about 6:45pm, as usual, and have a post-screening speaker.
We hope to see you there.

The Tent Vilage is a short film (25 min) made by Nilima Abrams, a Vermont based filmmaker, and four teenage students she worked with in India.  After learning basic film-making, the students decided to film their own community at roadside hovels where garbage workers and hair-collectors live.
What makes this film unique is not that it’s a poverty story in India but is the rare perspective these students chose to focus on and bring this unusual look at their own culture.
The film was screened at several international film festivals in 2016, including at the Society for Visual Anthropology at Rutgers University.  The film maker, Nilima Abrams will be available through Skype for the post-screening discussion.
As usual, popcorn and other refreshments will also be available.
Free Admission donations appreciated).  For more information please contact:
