Building Community Bridges Brings Back Movies with a Message

Building Community Bridges will host movie nights each month here at One World starting on November 1st and running a new film on the first Thursday of the month.

The November 1st file will be Amreeka 2009: Muna, a single mother in Ramallah, has applied for a visa to the US. When it comes, her son Fadi, an excellent student, convinces her they should go. After an incident at customs begins their exile badly, they join Muna’s sister and family in Illinois. Muna needs a job: although she has two degrees and 15 years’ experience in banking, she settles for work at White Castle, telling the family her job’s at a nearby bank. It’s spring, 2003, and the US invades Iraq. While friends come from unlikely places, Fadi meets prejudice at school. How he’ll respond to it and to American youth culture and how Muna will sort things out with her family are the rest of the story. Tragedy or hope?

Join us at One World, 163 North main Street, Suite 203, Port Chester at 7:00 PM on November 1st.
