The Pemberton Library hosts a movie night

and award winning films.
This month the Library will be screening Pushing the
Elephant a story about a Congolese woman fighting to bring
attention to the constant violence and oppression her country still
Pushing the Elephant
In the late 1990s, Rose Mapendo lost her family and home to
the violence that engulfed the Democratic Republic of
Congo. She emerged advocating forgiveness and
reconciliation. In a country where ethnic
violence has created seemingly irreparable rifts among Tutsis,
Hutus and other Congolese, this remarkable woman is a vital voice
in her beleaguered nation's search for peace.
As always the Mile One Eatery will be hosting the Movie

The film will be screened inside the Pemberton Library
