Which Way Home: Community Films and Conversations

September 23, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Movie Poster for Which Way Home

Powerful films can transport, challenge, and in many cases, open the mind to new ideas, perspectives and greater learning. Community Films and Conversations consists of three films over three months that are compelling to watch, that tell important stories and that inspire people to learn more and prompt conversations. Moderators and special guests are selected based on the subject matter of each film and aim to engage the audience in meaningful dialogues about current issues related to diversity and social justice. Short receptions follow in the Museum Café and guests are invited to see related exhibitions on view.

Community Films and Conversations is an affiliate of the For Freedoms project, a platform for civic engagement, discourse, and direct action for artists in the United States, and is supported, in part by the Alabama Humanities Foundation.

Movie Poster for Which Way Home

The first film for the fall, Which Way Home, tells the story of a group of unaccompanied Central American children, who travel through Mexico in hopes to reach the U.S. border and create a new life for their families. The program is hosted by Alabama del Este: Presente with moderator Anton Flores-Maisonet, founder of Casa Alterna in LaGrange, Georgia.
