All Souls Bethlehem Film Festival

March 24, 2015

All Souls Bethlehem Church  Anti-Racism Film Festival is being held on March 27th and April 10th-11th. Please mark you calendars and come out to see some powerful films that deal with the multilevel issues of racism.

Friday Night March 27th at 7PM:

The Festival begins with “Walk With Me,” a documentary that tells the story of the Church of Gethsemane located in the Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn. Gethsemane has long-ministered to the family’s of incarcerated individuals.

Friday Night April 10th at 7PM:

On April 10th we’ll show the Academy Award-Winning documentary, “Taxi to the Dark.” This unflinching examination of torture and death inside US military prisons will be the foundation for a post-film discussion on both Islamaphobia and the misguided “War on Terror.”

Then on Saturday April 11th we’ll show three films:

1PM: “Shenandoah”

This powerful documentary tells the story of four high school boys who murdered a Mexican immigrant. “Shenandoah” dissects the mob mentality of the small town in which the atrocity took place.

4PM: “Lilting”

This major motion picture, according to the Netflix review, “features intensely moving performances by Asian cinema’s legend Cheng Pei Pei as Junn, an immigrant mother grieving the untimely death of her only son Kai (Andrew Leung), and Ben Whishaw as her son’s lover, Richard. Jun’s grieving is disrupted by Richard’s visits and his attempts to communicate are first met with distrust. Richard hires Vann, a young translator, who helps piece together the tender memories of the man they both loved.”

7PM: “Slam”

Spoken word poets Saul Williams and Sonja Sohn star in this scathing critique of America’s racist judicial system and the burgeoning Prison Industrial Complex. The real-life artists at the heart of this powerful drama attest to the bridge between creativity and spiritual liberation.

If you’re new to All Souls Bethlehem Church don’t be thrown off by the large church on the corner of Cortelyou Road and E. 7th St., as we are located in a house midway down the block between Cortelyou Rd. and Ditmas Ave. (across the street from the basketball courts of the Middle School)..
