Thursday Nights: International Film Series
All films begin at 7:30 p.m. and are free and open to the public.

Films, as a unique form of human communication, have a way of transporting us outside of our comfort zones so that we can experience and better understand other people’s lives and world views. Films connect us to the greater issues in life, such as war, peace-making, and the complicated role the media plays in reporting on conflicts. The first films in the International Film Series are linked to the Conference on Media, War and Conflict Resolution.

For more information, call 419-372-GISH or see the web site.


A film in the spirit of the conference themes will be shown Thursday, September 18 at 7:30 p.m.
