‘Encounter Point’ screening
Rockland — Rockland Public Library, 80 Union St., will present a screening and discussion of the award-winning documentary “Encounter Point” Thursday, Sept. 6 at 6:30 p.m. in the Friends Community Room. Bill Halpin and Saskia Huising will lead the post-film discussion. The evening is co-sponsored with the Camden Conference Community Events Series.
Winner of the Audience Award at the San Francisco International Film Festival and of the Spirit of Freedom Award at the Bahamas International Film Festival, Ronit Avni and Julia Bacha’s inspiring documentary is about the Bereaved Family Circle, a group of 250 Israelis and 250 Palestinians who have lost family members in the fighting and who come together to dialog about peace, risking their lives and public standing to promote a nonviolent end to the Mideast conflict. “Encounter Point” is an upbeat film about everyday leaders, not reported on by the news media, who choose peaceful action instead of revenge.
