Music Documentary and Discussion at Seekonk Library

Posted

Seekonk, MA – Do you love to talk about music as much as we do? Come join us as we watch and discuss a music documentary at the Seekonk Library on Tuesday, June 18th at 5:30 pm. This month’s documentary is Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars by Zach Niles and Banker White.

This event is a collaboration with POV, the award-winning independent nonfiction film series on PBS and offered FREE to the public, no registration required (www.pbs.org/pov).

If the refugee is today's tragic icon of a war-ravaged world, then Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars, a reggae-inflected band born in the camps of West Africa, represents a real-life story of survival and hope. The six-member Refugee All Stars came together in Guinea after civil war forced them from their native Sierra Leone. Traumatized by physical injuries and the brutal loss of family and community, they fight back with the only means they have — music.

This film is not rated. The running time is 1 hour and 18 minutes. Discussion will follow immediately after viewing; there is no need to pre-view the film. Come to learn, listen, and/or share!
