Film:
"THE POWER OF FORGIVENESS"
(87 min, Martin Doblmeier, 2008)
Featuring Thich Nhat Hanh, Elie Wiesel and others.
The POWER of FORGIVENESS is a dramatic documentary film that takes an honest look at the intensity of anger and grief that human nature is heir to. It is a collection of seven short stories that profile some of the most dramatic transgressions imaginable along with stories that feel more familiar and manageable to the viewer. It explores the role forgiveness holds in various faith traditions and examines how the scientific community is now measuring the physical and mental benefits of letting go of grief and resentment.
"There is an underlying anger in our country that we see regularly in our movies, in the news, even on our highways. For some, that anger is acceptable while others are calling for a new direction in our thinking and the way we interact with others."
- Filmmaker Martin Doblmeier.

Film:
"BLACKFISH"
(93 min, Gabriela Cowperthwaite, 2013)
Gabriela Cowperthwaite's Blackfish is proof that documentaries can change the world we live in.
A mesmerizing psychological thriller with a killer whale at its centre, Blackfish is the first film since Grizzly Man to show how nature can get revenge on man when pushed to its limits.
Blackfish tells the story of Tilikum, a performing killer whale that killed several people while in captivity. Along the way, the director-producer compiles shocking footage and emotional interviews to explore the creature’s extraordinary nature, the species’ cruel treatment in captivity, the lives and losses of the trainers and the pressures brought to bear by the multi-billion dollar sea-park industry. This emotionally wrenching, tautly structured story challenges us to consider our relationship to nature and reveals how little we humans have learned from these highly intelligent and enormously sentient fellow mammals.

"PROJECT UNSPEAKABLE"
A Dramatic Reading of Selected Sections of the Play, with Video Vignettes
(A Play by Court Dorsey, with Associate writers:: Stephen Wangh & Debbie Lynangale), based on a book by Jim Douglass)
AND OUR 12th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION!
Portions of the play will be a read by Friends of Meaningful Movies, a collection of 15 readers from our own social justice community. And we'll augment the performance with interspersed historical videos.

ABOUT THE PLAY:
Coinciding with the 50th commemoration of the death of Malcolm X (Feb 21, 1965), PROJECT UNSPEAKABLE is a theatrical work about the role of Thomas Merton’s “Unspeakable” in the assassinations of John F. Kennedy, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Robert Kennedy.
From the authors of the play: . A generation of baby-boomers who have lived most of their adult lives in the rubble of shattered dreams, who have seen the great leaders of their generation slaughtered in officially whitewashed circumstances, are invited to come forward to insist that the truth finally be uncovered regarding this destruction of lives and visionary leadership. In addition, Project Unspeakable offers [everyone] a unique opportunity, not only to learn more about these four inspirational leaders of the 1960’s, but also to reenergize their recent efforts to confront current manifestations of the “Unspeakable,” as many have already been doing in the “Occupy” and climate action movements.

FOLLOWED BY FACILITATED COMMUNITY DISCUSSION. ...and regardless of your position, this will be a fascinating evening!
Light snacks.
