Screening of “The Good Lie”

November 6, 2016

Sackville Refugee Response Coalition (SRRC) is pleased to present “The Good Lie.” This movie will be shown Sunday, November 6 at 7:00 p.m. at Sackville United Church, 110 Main Street. It will be followed by a brief discussion moderated by Margaret Tusz-King.

“The Good Lie” tells the story of The Lost Boys of Sudan. In 1983, many young children who survived massacres of their villages during the Sudanese civil war walked for hundreds of kilometres to safety. Several years later, many of these Lost Boys (and girls) came to North America as refugees. “The Good Lie” is the true story of a small group of these children, and their adaptation to American culture.

Starring Reese Witherspoon and a cast of Sudanese actors who themselves are former child soldiers and lost boys, this movie provides us with food for thought as we continue to prepare for the arrival our third family, from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Refugees from the DRC have fled ongoing violence resulting from years of civil war and unrest.

There is no admission charge. Please note that this film is not suitable for young children because of dramatic depictions of the civil war.
