In keeping with our aim to provide relevant, thought provoking, conversation inducing films for our friends and neighbors to watch together, Gather, Inspire, Act has chosen “Jackson’ for Friday, October 12th.
"Jackson is an intimate, unprecedented look at the lives of three women caught up in the complex issues surrounding abortion access. Set against the backdrop of the fight to close the last abortion clinic in Mississippi, Jackson captures the essential and hard truth of the lives at the center of the debate over reproductive healthcare in America."
Pathos says that it is "simultaneously fierce and kind in its depiction of two sides of a desperate crisis and in the questions that it asks and (implicitly) answers."
The topic of women’s reproductive rights has been used as a wedge to divide the people of this country in ways that have spilled over into almost every facet of public discourse. That divide over the issue has driven the political dysfunction that we are now in the midst of. so we think it would be good to hear and see the stories of people personally involved. The work of peacemaking includes listening to those with whom we don’t agree. The director Maise Crow has done just that and we want to learn from her inquiry.
So come gather with us on:
Friday, October 12th at
Crescenta Valley United Methodist Church
2700 Montrose Ave., Montrose. Doors open at 7, film at 7:30.
Refreshments will be served and we will share our thoughts in conversation after the film. I hope to see you then.
Peace, Jeanne L.
