Movie Night: Welcome

Tuesday, May 23, 2017

Join us for a screening of the multiple-award-winning film the New York Times calls a “compelling, finely balanced immigration drama”

17-year-old Kurdish refugee Bilal crosses Europe, in hopes of being reunited with his girlfriend, who is now in England.  After being detained by immigration authorities in France, Bilal plans to swim across the English Channel. He’ll need help from Simon, a middle-aged French swimming instructor experiences some turmoil of his own.
