Virtual Watch Party - Strangers in Town
Time & Location
About the Event
In an effort to help shine a light on the unique challenges of immigrants, we are hosting an online movie night on September 17th in partnership with KBTC. The movie will be followed by a panel discussion with choir members and the film's director.
On Thursday September 17th, we will be hosting a virtual watch party of "Strangers in Town" to celebrate this year's Welcoming Week (September 12th - September 20th).
Strangers in Town (2018) tells the story of how global migration transformed a rural town in Kansas to be the most ethnically diverse in the state. In Garden City, the diversity of culture and heritage gives new meaning to the city's motto "the world grows here."
The film screening will be followed with an intimate discussion featuring film director, Steve Lerner, and guest panelists with a variety of experiences immigrating from their home countries to the United States. We will be discussing these questions in the guest panel following the screening.
