We choose documentaries we hope will open our eyes collectively to issues that are important to our lives in Ossining.
At these free screenings, we will have a panel of experts available to answer questions and facilitate our discussion.
We hope that the issues raised in the documentary will encourage the viewers to ask questions and seek out ways to make a difference in Ossining and in The World. Please check our schedule and mark your calendars for our upcoming screenings.
For up to date information about the documentaries we have selected, please “like” us on Facebook!
