    Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri

    After months have passed without a culprit in her daughter’s murder case, Mildred Hayes makes a bold move, painting three signs leading into her town with a controversial message aimed at the town’s revered chief of police. When his second-in-command, an immature mother’s boy with a penchant for violence, gets involved, the battle between Mildred and Ebbing’s law enforcement is only exacerbated.

    The story of City of Joy is the story of love and community. It is the story of what happens when women who are sexual survivors live together in community, heal themselves and each other, and create their destiny on their own terms. The transformation that is seen at City of Joy is profound - the most abused become the most powerful who turn poison into medicine, isolation into community, shame into self-love, silence into story. This is the story of what happens when women have time to heal and truly release and transform trauma, when women are loved and held and nurtured and treated with deepest kindness, dignity and intention.
    Our gratitude to the first class at City of Joy, the Co-Founders of City of Joy Christine Schuler Deschryver, Dr. Denis Mukwege, and Eve Ensler, and Director Madeleine Gavin and the filmmakers for capturing the story of City of Joy.

    There will be time for a discussion following the screening of this documentary.

    It began in 1883 as an unlikely partnership between a group of Catholic nuns and a country doctor named William Worrall Mayo.  In the wake of a deadly tornado in rural Minnesota, Mayo and his two sons, Will and Charlie enlisted the help of Mother Alfred Moes and her nearby Order of Franciscan Sisters to care for the wounded.  Later, Mother Alfred would claim to have had a vision instructing her to build a hospital in Rochester, Minnesota with Mayo as its director.  It would become, she said "world renowned for its medical arts."

    The Mayo Clinic:  Faith, Hope, and Science tells the story of the renowned institution that has been called a "Medical Mecca," the "Supreme Court of Medicine," and the "place for hope when there is no hope."  By combining the history of the institution with intimate stories about present day patients, the film makes an important contribution to discussions about our commitment to taking care of each other, about the role of money and profit in medicine, and about the very nature of healing itself.  The Mayos had a simple philosophy "the needs of the patient come first."

    The Eagle Huntress A thirteen-year-old girl trains to become the first female in 12 generations of her Kazakh family to become an eagle hunter and rise to the pinnacle of a tradition that has been handed down from father to son for centuries. While there are many old Kazakh eagle hunters who vehemently reject the idea of any female taking part in their ancient tradition, the girl’s father believes that a girl can do anything a boy can, as long as she’s determined.
