Los Angeles, CA - Reel Action/Real Change with American Jewish World Service

  • WME Screening Room 9601 Wilshire Boulevard Beverly Hills, CA, 90210 United States (map)

Join Global Circle, American Jewish World Service’s network of young professional supporters, for an evening dedicated to films that expose human rights abuses and document the stories of courageous activists. During this tumultuous time of rising oppression, xenophobia and inequality, we will explore how both AJWS and documentary film play an integral role in amplifying the voices of local change-makers and shining a light for truth and justice.

Juan Carlos González Díaz, Director of Hasta la Raíz 
Sophia Kruz, Director and Producer of Little Stones 
Jeanne Hallacy, Director of Sittwe

The program will include a cocktail reception, screening and panel discussion with the filmmakers, remarks by AJWS President and CEO Robert Bank, and a dessert reception.
