Starr Carter is constantly switching between two worlds: the poor, mostly black, neighborhood where she lives and the rich, mostly white, prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Now, facing pressures from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and stand up for what's right.
6:30 doors open (snacks); 7:00 film shown (captions for hearing impaired); discussion follows.
The purpose of Faith & Film is: To enable viewers to enter into theological conversation with film, by fostering discussions from our spiritual perspective and our faith journeys.
Watching a film is only half of the experience; discussing a film leads to a full experience.
From our very beginning we have tried to show films that engage our lives and transport us out of our own culture or age and immerse us in the lives and concerns of people far away in time or geography, challenge us to care and perhaps even to change our ways of thinking and behaving, and then to draw from deep within us meaningful discussions with each other.
