FYI: Screening of Columbus Crossing Borders Project
January 10, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
The Columbus Crossing Borders film Breathe Free is a moving, powerful documentary that shares the stories of refugees and the art exhibit inspired by those stories. Through the lens of filmmaker Doug Swift, we are introduced to those who fled war, violence and persecution. We witness the unease and fear surrounding U.S. border issues. And we learn how this leads to 34 artists producing a project based on forced migration.
The evening begins with refreshments at 5:30 pm on Wednesday, January 10. The film starts at 6 pm and will be followed by a Q&A panel.
The travelling art exhibit, Columbus Crossing Borders, will be on display at the Xavier University Art Gallery the following day. Learn more.
This screening is presented by Catholic Charities Southwestern Ohio, CET-Think TV, Xavier University Department of Art, Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati, and the Ursulines of Cincinnati in partnership with the Archdiocese of Cincinnati Social Action Office, Bellarmine Chapel, Immaculate Heart of Mary, Islamic Center of Greater Cincinnati – Rahma Community Services, St. Anthony Church (Madisonville), and Xavier University Center for Interfaith Community Engagement.
