The Mid-East Focus Ministry at Saint Mark’s Cathedral will screen its first series of films by outstanding documentary film artists from Gaza, Israel, Palestine, and the United States. This ministry’s goal is to help people understand the realities that shape the lives of people in Israel / Palestine. The purpose of the series is to bring into focus the human dimensions of daily lives there.
Hosts for the films will include Cindy Corrie, Ed Mast, Amin Odeh, Ziad Abbas, Peter Lippman, and the Very Rev. Steve Thomason, Dean and Rector of St. Marks Cathedral.
All films will be shown on Wednesday evenings at 7 p.m in Skinner Auditorium (1501 Tenth Ave. E.) at the north end of Brightwater School, the building just north of Saint Marks Cathedral campus where there is parking. There will be a discussion following each screening.
* Please note, there will be no film on Wednesday, March 5, Ash Wednesday.
