GUEST FILMMAKER: JIM MCKAY

THURSDAY APRIL 25  |  7:30p  |  FREE

Acclaimed indie filmmaker JIM McKAY returns to Athens to present and discuss his new narrative feature film, EN EL SEPTIMO DIA (ON THE SEVENTH DAY) following a group of undocumented immigrants living in Sunset Park, Brooklyn over the course of seven days.

Shot in the neighborhoods of Sunset Park, Park Slope, and Gowanus, EN EL SÉPTIMO DÍA is a humane, sensitive and humorous window into a world rarely seen. The film’s impact is made quietly, with restraint and respect for the individual experiences, everyday challenges and small triumphs of its characters.

Sponsored by the UGA Film Studies Program and the Willson Center for Arts and Humanities, admission to this 7:30p screening is FREE and open to the public, and tickets will be available at the Cine Box Office starting at 5:00p on the day of the event.

DOCUMENTARY SCREENING: IYENGAR

THURSDAY MAY 23  |  7:30p  |  RSVP HERE

Iyengar Yoga is universally respected, practiced worldwide and credited by multitudes as life-transforming, but because its founder B. K. S. Iyengar is famously reclusive, little is known about the man who invented this powerful practice... until now! Thanks to exclusive, intimate access to this legendary yogi, Jake Clennell's documentary IYENGAR: THE MAN, YOGA, THE STUDENT'S JOURNEY is required viewing for anyone with an interest in yoga, wellness, spirituality, or the connection of mind and body.

Screening presented by Chet Thomas Yoga, Five Points Yoga and Nimbl with a brief audience discussion and Q&A following the film.

AADM ROUNDTABLE: Discussing Race, Policing, & Difficult Conversations

WEDNESDAY MAY 22   |  5:30-7:00p  |  FREE

Our society is experiencing some turbulent times and community members, parents, teachers, and leaders feel uncomfortable discussing difficult issues surrounding race, racism, sexism, immigration, police brutality and educational equity which only keep us divided. Beginning on January 9, 2019, on the second Wednesday of each month, Athens Anti-Discrimination Movement (AADM) will provide a safe space and platform for citizens to have difficult conversations, ask questions, find solutions and learning from each other's experiences. Hosted by Mokah Speaks Podcast, these sessions will include simulations and hands-on activities through dialogue and face-to-face engagement, with an overall goal to gain mutual understanding, and improve race and community relations.
