Anyone interested to watch "Freedom Writers"?

Postby serravre » Mon, 18 Oct 2010 5:22 pm

Hi everyone,

I am organising a charity movie screening, showing noted film "Freedom Writers". "Freedom Writers" is inspired by a true story and the diaries of real Long Beach teenagers after the Los Angeles riots, during the worst outbreak of interracial gang warfare. Two time Academy Award winner, Hilary Swank, stars as Erin Gruwell whose passion to become a teacher is soon challenged by her Black, Latino and Asian students who hate her more than they hate each other. When Erin begins to listen to them in a way no adult has ever done, she begins to understand that for these kids, getting through the day alive is enough -- they are not delinquents but teenagers fighting "a interracial war of the streets" that begun long before they were born.

Erin gives them something they never had from a teacher before -- respect. For the first time, these teens experience a hope that maybe they might show the world that their lives matter and they might have something to say.

Just contribute a minimum donation of $15.00 per person and join us! The proceeds contributes to CampVision: Expedition Agape to support the impoverished community in Neora Valley, West Bengal as well as to sponsor underprivileged & at-risk youths on a 6 months mentorship programme.

Venue: Sinema, 11B Mount Sophia Singapore 228466 (10min walking distance from Dhoby Ghaut MRT)
