Event description

Description

Hennepin Avenue United Methodist Church and Winter Light Films are pleased to present an evening of film, food, and intercultural dialogue with a special preview screening of FIRST PERSON PLURAL, a new feature film by Twin Cities filmmaker Eric Tretbar. Developed with actors, artists, composers, and musicians from the Twin Cities’ thriving Somali, film, theater, and music communities, FIRST PERSON PLURAL is the story of two Minneapolis filmmakers—the son of a Somali imam and daughter of a white Baptist preacher—who fall in love on Thanksgiving Day and bring together their estranged families for Thanksgiving dinner.

This special preview screening is a chance to bring the cast and cuisine off the screen for a discussion of the film’s issues and production with the director and actors over a delicious Somali meal (vegetarian options available). Made by and for the people it depicts, FIRST PERSON PLURAL aims to create a lively discussion of some of today’s most pressing issues that reflects the humor, love, and conflicts that we all have in common. Seating is general admission, so arrive early for the best selection.
