This new film from Paulist Productions (www.PaulistProductions.org) will be screening at the DC Independent Film Festival on Sunday, March 9th at 1:30 p.m at Georgetown University. I find this film inspiring, moving, informative and filled with powerful stories (the screening we had at a theater in Westwood a couple of months ago was filled to capacity and people were impressed and touched.) If you live in the DC area, or know someone who does, I hope you will make a pilgrimage and experience forgiveness on the big screen.
The Big Question: A Film About Forgiveness premieres at the D.C. International Film Festival. Please plan on joining me for this one time showing on Sunday March 9th at 1:30 p.m. at the Jack Morton Auditorium on the campus of GW University.

A troubled man bursts into your child's schoolhouse. Without warning, he chases out all the boys and lines the girls up. Then he begins to shoot them one by one. For decades your people's backs have been broken by the oppressive yoke of Apartheid. Suddenly, the tables are turned and you and your friends are in power. Your own mother is brutally raped and slain by a random burglar. What would you do? Could you forgive? Should you forgive? In this remarkable new film the filmmakers explore The Big Question through astonishing acts of forgiveness, courage and will.
