18 Bleecker Street, NoHo/East Village in downtown Manhattan.
THE SHEEN CENTER FOR THOUGHT & CULTURE (www.SheenCenter.org) will host a special screening of Fork Films’ documentary
Armor of Light, by Academy Award-nominated filmmaker
Abigail E. Disney (
The Invisible War) and a post-screening Q&A. The screening will take place at
7:00 PM on Monday, April 11th, at The Sheen Center, located at 18 Bleecker Street (corner of Elizabeth Street).
In a gripping portrait of courage, Disney follows the journey of a conservative Evangelical minister,
Reverend Rob Schenck, trying to find moral strength to preach about the growing toll of gun violence in America. Along the way, Rev. Schenck meets
Lucy McBath, the mother of Jordan Davis, an unarmed teenager who was shot and killed in Florida and whose story cast a spotlight on “Stand Your Ground” laws. The film follows these allies through their trials of conscience, heartbreak and rejection, as they bravely attempt to make others consider America’s gun culture through a moral lens and bring people, from across deep party lines, to find common ground.
Following the film, The Sheen Center will be hosting a panel discussion with Disney, Rev. Schenck, and Ms. McBath.
Tickets are available
here for $12.
