Every month the Pemberton Library hosts a movie night at the Pemberton Community Centre. The purpose of the event is shine a light on an important subject or style of film we wouldn't normally watch on our own.
This month's featured film is Pushing the Elephant a movie focusing on the ongoing violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
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.
Join us this Thursday, February 28 for a screening of Pushing the Elephant at the Pemberton Library. The movie will start at 7PM and is FREE to come and watch.
As always people are encouraged to join us at the Mile One Eatery for a special Movie Night deal on burgers before the screening.
