FILM SCREENING

Film will begin at 6:00pm. Some light refreshments will be provided.

The film follows the remarkable work of 2011 CNN Hero, Ibu Robin Lim and her efforts to protect the smallest citizens of Earth. Filmmaker Déjà Bernhardt has captured on camera tender moments of childbirth and human bonding, as they unfold in our planet’s most extreme locations of environmental and political disaster. As Bernhardt takes us from beautiful Bali, where terrorist bombings have destroyed the economy, to post Tsunami Aceh, she highlights the efforts of one remarkable woman who has been recognized globally for illuminating the difference one person can make. -IMDB
