A series of free documentary film screenings is coming to northeast Winnipeg.
Starting this Sunday, Moksha Yoga Kildonan (1615 Regent Ave. West) will host "3,2,1, Action!"
Organized by the Manitoba Council for International Cooperation and 1JustCity, the series features a selection of films focusing on local and global social issues followed by a discussion period.
The first film screens this Sun., Sept. 20 at 7:30 p.m. Life on Victor Street is a documentary by local filmmaker Kirby Hammond which tells the story of Brent Thomas, his father Fred, and their struggle to avoid violence in crime in their neighbourhood. Hammond spent two years hanging around the Thomas family during the making of the film.
Speakers from Circles of Support and Accountability (CoSA), 2 Peaceful Warriors and Osu Children’s Library Fund will host a discussion following the film. The event is free but a donation of $20 will get you a week’s pass of yoga at Moksha Yoga Kildonan.
