Refugee All-Stars Screening; free drinks

Global Inheritance Presents "The Bigger Picture" Screening Series—A Special Segment of the Sunset Cinema Series at the QuikSilverEdition Mission

Come chill with Global Inheritance and QuikSilverEdition as we present our summer film screening series. Each Global Inheritance film screening will target a different issue and hosted the individuals who made the film possible.

On August 30th, 2007 "The Bigger Picture" will be screening "Sierra Leone's Refugee All-Stars," hosted by the film’s co-director Banker White and musical director, Chris Velan. Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars chronicles the story of six Sierra Leonean musicians who came together to form a band while living in a refugee camp in Guinea. Despite the unimaginable horrors of civil war, they were saved and brought hope and happiness to their fellow refugees through their music. As violent conflicts multiply around the globe and the worldwide refugee crisis deepens, Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars is a humanizing ode to all the innocent survivors of war whose brutal realities are often dismissed by surface mass media sound bytes.
