Film Screening: Dear Mr. President
Tuesday, June 2 at 7 pm
Dear Mr. President, by documentary filmmaker Debra Sugerman chronicles the voyage of 5 artistic young women, from the regions of Israel and Palestine, across the United States. The ultimate aim of the girls’ journey is to deliver a message to then President George Bush about the futility of war to solve the problems facing the Middle East. As the girls travel in their RV giving informal talks to the public, they find their inherited cultural barriers crumbling and fading as they come to know each other as people through art and conversation.
