New Religion & Film Series Begins Tomorrow at UWest

The Buddhist Chaplaincy Program at University of the West is pleased to announced that a new Religion & Film Series, sponsored by us, will officially begin tomorrow night. The series is part of a new bunch of activities on campus for both students and members of the local community. This being the case, we're excited and hoping for a good turnout. You can find out more about the series (including the full line-up of films) at MahaSangha News.

Films will be shown on video, using either an LCD projector or a large screen television. So, the screenings will be decidedly low-key, but it's open to the public and we hope to see you there.

Tomorrow at 7 p.m., we will start the series off in ED309 with a screening of Peter Weir's 1985 classic Witness. The film stars Harrison Ford as a police detective in hiding with the Pennsylvania Amish. Program Coordinator Danny Fisher will lead an informal discussion about the film right after the screening. The trailer is embedded below.
