Online Film Discussions
For Braver Angels
Watch a movie on your own, then get together with others who are similar to or different from you to discuss it.
The movies we choose cover social/political issues we’re currently dealing with in our daily lives and society at large. They may highlight liberal-leaning, conservative-leaning or independent themes, or feature actors or directors from opposite sides of the political spectrum.
We encourage participants to engage in thoughtful conversation, exposing themselves to different points of view, and emphasizing Braver Angels listening and speaking skills. In addition to bridging divides, we hope participants will find enjoyment in rewatching some of their favorite films, and in discovering new ones. To suggest a film, volunteer to help out, or if you have any questions, please contact email@example.com
NEXT FILM — DIALOGUE LAB: AMERICA
Our next Film Event will take place Tuesday, May 31 at 8 pm ET. We will discuss Dialogue Lab: America, 2022, a touching, powerful, and provocative documentary about what happens when 12 Americans across the political spectrum come together in an experiment to listen to one another’s views and learn each other’s stories about how they became who they are. Whether you’ve attended no film discussions, just one, or a number of them, you are welcome to attend and join in!
