Join the Pleasanton Adult and Career Education for this special film documentary series focused on shining a light on our diversity and shared humanity. These free events will be held at the Firehouse Arts Center, 4444 Railroad Avenue, in Pleasanton.
Three films will be featured in this series over a three month period. Films, dates and times are as follows:
Lives Worth Living February 16, 2017 - 7 pm People with disabilities are one of the largest minorities in the United States. This documentary is an oral history of the events leading up to the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Prepare to be moved by the stories of struggle and perseverance from people who pushed for this piece of civil rights legislation.
The Mask You Live In March 30, 2017 - 7 pm This documentary follows boys and young men negotiating America's narrow definition of masculinity. They confront messages encouraging them to disconnect from their emotions, devalue authentic friendships, objectify and degrade women, and resolve conflicts through violence. This film asks, can our society raise a healthier generation of boys and young men?
He Named Me Malala April 20, 2017 - 7 pm This film is an intimate portrait of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai, who was targeted by the Taliban and severely wounded by a gunshot when returning home on her school bus in Pakistan. Acclaimed documentary filmmaker Davis Guggenheim shows us how Malala and her family are committed to education for all girls worldwide.
