We're starting 2014 off with an exciting opening at the Cinema Village in NYC! Two shows a day, times to be announced. Mark your calendars and tell all your friends in the metropolitan New York area. Please try to come for the opening weekend- the director will be there with special guests from the film for audience Q&A after select screenings.
The Saint Nicholas Peace and Justice Committee, which is sponsoring the screening, currently has its focus on immigration reform and bridge building between the parish's Anglo and Hispanic membership. The Peace and Justice Committee joins Sisters Pat Murphy and JoAnn Persch each week in ministry at the prayer vigil at Broadview Detention Center (featured in the film), and in post detention accompaniment, which supports immigrants newly released from jail.
