Dinner and a Doc, November 12th

We will be screening Paul Saltzman’s Prom Night in Mississippi for Dinner and a Doc this November the 12th. The film portrays the story of the 2008 prom at Charlston High School in Mississippi, which Morgan Freeman offers to fund if it will be the first racially integrated prom in the school’s history. In the course of events, the film also explores the current state of race relations in the American south. Here are a few links for those who would like to see more about the film:

1) The official website for the film;
2) An interview with director, Paul Saltzman; and
3) An interview with Morgan Freedom.

We will meet as usual at First Baptist Church, Guelph, which is located at 255 Woolwich Street, eating at 5:30 and beginning the film at about 6:00. There is no childcare, so children are only welcome if their parents will supervise them during the film. Please post a comment or send me an email to let me know if you will be coming and if you would like to bring something to contribute to the meal.

Here is the schedule for upcoming months:

December 10th – Off for Christmas
January 14th – South of the Border by Oliver Stone
February 11th – Vernon, Florida by Errol Morris
