    Date: February 15, 2018
    Time: 6:30 PM - 6:30 PM CST
    Event Description:
    The Sisters of St. Francis, Clinton, Iowa, present movies that matter monthly on Thursdays at 6:30 p.m. at The Canticle, 841 Thirteenth Avenue North in Clinton. The movies are free and open to the public. The February movie is Whose Streets and will be shown on Thursday, February 15. Told by the activists and leaders who live and breathe this movement for justice, “Whose Streets” is an unflinching look at the Ferguson uprising. When unarmed teenager Michael Brown is killed by police and left lying in the street for hours, it marks a breaking point for the residents of St. Louis, Missouri. Grief, long-standing racial tensions and renewed anger bring residents together to hold vigil and protest this latest tragedy. Empowered parents, artists, and teachers from around the country come together as freedom fighters. As the National Guard descends on Ferguson with military-grade weaponry, these young community members become the torchbearers of a new resistance.
