Better Angels Documentary Screening, May 17

You are invited to a Premiere Documentary Screening of Better Angels: Reuniting America on Friday, May 17, at 8:00 pm ET at the Church at Clarendon, 1210 N Highland St, in Arlington, VA.

Please register in advance for this free event.

It all began in southwest Ohio, where Trump voters and Clinton voters gathered in our Red/Blue workshops in the weeks and months after the 2016 election. Now, the second workshop and its aftermath have been captured in Better Angels: Reuniting America, a one-hour documentary film by Emmy-winning director Jim Brown and produced by Peter Yarrow of the legendary Peter, Paul, and Mary trio.

Better Angels: Reuniting America shows 8 Democratic-leaning voters and 7 Republican-leaning voters moving through a Better Angels signature Red/Blue workshop, from initial skepticism to more profound understanding and empathy. You’ll get an inside look at how a Democratic voter went from threatening to cut off relationships with Trump voters to becoming dear friends with one-and how a Republican voter moved from disdaining progressives to taking co-leadership with one in a movement that now spans the country.

This live-stream broadcast from southwest Ohio will also include a Q&A with Jim Brown, Peter Yarrow, Better Angels President David Blankenhorn, and Red/Blue workshop participants Greg Smith (conservative) and Kouhyar Mostashfi (liberal), who have since become close friends and Better Angels leaders.

Remarks will begin at 8:20 and the documentary will start at 8:30.Questions? Contact Liza Figueroa Kravinsky at lizakravinsky@gmail.com.
