Once In Afghanistan Film Event
Thursday, January 13, 2011 from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM (MST)
Don't forget- once our tickets sell out, you can buy them directly from DFS via their website... information is below.
Please join us for the second film in our Peace Corps Film Series, hosted by the Denver Film Society, on Thursday, January 13 at 7:00pm.
January's film is "Once In Afghanistan," a film made by RPCV Jill Vickers.
Synopsis: Returned Peace Corps Volunteers recall their experiences as female members of Afghan male vaccinator teams in the late 60s.The women vividly recall trying to convince the women to be vaccinated and their dependence on the Afghan counterparts and the people in the villages. Their stories and photographs go behind the walls where people of completely different backgrounds could recognize one another in spite of their differences. In a world in which messages of hate travel faster than ever before, this is a message of understanding.
You can watch the trailer HERE.

This screening will take place in the new Denver Film Society theater, located at 2510 East Colfax Avenue. Following the film, we will be hosting a small reception in the lobby of the theater. We will be joined by two of the women featured in the film, who will be available to answer questions.
We have purchased 50 discounted tickets for this screening- if you purchase a ticket through us, they are $10 and include the reception afterwards. Otherwise tickets are $12 each. You may purchase tickets online here, or pay by check or cash at the door. Select "other payment options" if you decide to pay at the door, but please note that we will send you a bill if you reserve tickets and do not pay for your ticket the night of the show. The invoice will read "$11.24 owed," but you will only pay the $10 ticket price at the door. We have no way of changing that in the Eventbrite system.
All tickets will be available to pick up in the lobby of the theater prior to the film. They will not be mailed.
We hope to see you on January 13!
