Plan to join us for our next Media Night this July 14th when we will screen the documentary, 13th, an in-depth look at the prison system in the United States and how it reveals the nation’s history of racial inequality. The New York Times Review described the film as “powerful, infuriating, and at times overwhelming.” If you would like to view the official trailer, please use this link.
There is no cost for this event, but dana will be gratefully accepted. Refreshments will also be provided. All are welcome, and feel free to invite others. Helping with set up and clean up will be much appreciated.

Even Though the Whole World is Burning. A portrait of the life and work of Poet Laureate (2010) W.S. Merwin, that traces his dedication to the
preserving and regenerating of native plants along with major events in Merwin’s life. He moved to Hawaii to study with a Zen Buddhist master who lived there. Environmental activism and land stewardship informed his work. His poetry, that he reads throughout, speaks of a stillness and an awareness of gratitude for the earth while surrounded by destruction.
Here is a New Yorker review of this film, published in 2015.
