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.
Now actively seeking conservative and liberal club members! Please contact [email protected].
