Dinner and a Doc, June 13th, 2009

Next Saturday, June 13th, at our next Dinner and a Doc, we will be screening The Boys of Baraka, directed by Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady.  The film follows a group of boys from the ghettos of Baltimore as they travel to a boarding school in Kenya, and it explores the effects that such a change in environment and education might have in the lives of urban youth struggling with poverty and crime in American cities.

If you would like more information, here are some links to the trailer and to an interview with the filmmakers.

As usual, the event will be at my place, 130 Dublin Street, Guelph, and all are welcome, though I do appreciate an email or a comment to let me know that you will be coming. We will eat at about 5:30 and begin the film at about 6:00.
