The Agency for New Americans (ANA) hosts its Movie Night fund-raising event, May 15, 2013 @7:00 pm at The Flicks!
Tickets are $12 each.
Pushing the Elephant
Pushing the Elephant follows a year in the life of Rose Mapendo, a Tutsi from Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) who survived a death camp and genocidal violence to become an impassioned, internationally respected voice for reconciliation in her beleaguered country. Resettled since August 2000 with nine of her ten children in Phoenix, Arizona. Rose now balances her role as mother with full-time work assisting victims of persecution, displacement, and war. When Rose’s daughter, who was left behind in Africa, is reunited with the family, both she and Rose must learn how to reconnect and adjust to a new life in a new world. PUSHING THE ELEPHANT is a joyful, hopeful, moving chronicle of the healing power of forgiveness.
The funds raised from this event directly address the needs of refugees, particularly women, as they attempt to rebuild their lives and gain independence and self-sufficiency in their new country.
You can buy your tickets at the Agency for New Americans, 1614 W. Jefferson St. Boise, Id 83702, www.anaidaho.org or at The Flicks.
