MPTV COMMUNITY CINEMA

FREE PREVIEW & DISCUSSION

March 3 at 6:30 p.m.
PUSHING THE ELEPHANT

When civil war came to Rose's Congolese village, she was separated from her five-year-old daughter, Nangabire. Rose managed to escape with nine of her 10 children and was eventually resettled in Phoenix, Arizona. More than a decade later, mother and daughter are reunited in the U.S. where they must come to terms with the past and build a new future.

Join the open discussion and explore some of the work being done in our own community to reverse the cycles of violence against women. Among the panelists are representatives from Lutheran Social Services of Wisconsin and Upper Michigan and Sojourner Family Peace Center.

Broadcast: PUSHING THE ELEPHANT premieres on March 29 at 9:00 p.m. on MPTV 10.1 HD.

Watch FREE previews the first Thursday of the month (Sept-May) at 6:30 p.m. Discovery World's Innovation Theater, 500 N. Harbor Drive, Milwaukee. Parking in the underground structure is $1.00 for cinema attendees. More information: contact Darlyne Haertlein, Outreach Services 414-297-7518.
