Save the Date of Sunday, April 24th for a special event after worship in our church parlor: a screening of the award-winning film This Is [NOT] Who We Are followed by a Q & A with the film’s director, Katrina Miller.
We’ll begin with lunch at 12:00 pm, catered by local Latinx caterer Dunia Anzures (donations accepted).
At 12:30 pm, the screening of This Is [NOT] Who We Are will begin. The film was the 2022 Peoples Choice Award-winning film at this year’s Boulder International Film Festival. After the screening, there will be a Q and A with special guest Katrina Miller, the film’s Director, Producer, Videographer, and Narrator. Another special guest, Zayd Atkinson will also join us for the screening; Zayd suffered abuse by the Boulder police in 2019, and is an important subject of the film.
