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.

In this 2019 documentary, comedian Adam Carolla and radio talk show host Dennis Prager travel the country, talking to experts and advocates on the left and right, tour college campuses, and examine their own upbringings to try to understand what is happening in America today regarding freedom speech. It highlights free speech controversies occasioned when political conservatives are invited to speak in university settings.

No Safe Spaces is available for free on Tubi, via subscription on Amazon Prime, and for a small fee elsewhere.
