This January and February the Lander Library presents a new documentary series called Our Human Family. What are the common elements of being human? Every person lives, dreams, thinks, hopes, struggles, grows, and dies. Appreciation, sympathy, and respect for each are possible despite differences in culture, philosophy, and personal choices.
This event is free and open to the public.
February 13 at 6:30 pm: The Cave
For besieged civilians, hope and safety lie underground inside the subterranean hospital known as the Cave, where pediatrician and managing physician Dr. Amani Ballour and her colleagues Samaher and Dr. Alaa have claimed their right to work as equals alongside their male counterparts, doing their jobs in a way that would be unthinkable in the oppressively patriarchal culture that exists above. Following the women, as they contend with daily bombardments, chronic supply shortages and the ever-present threat of chemical attacks, The Cave paints a stirring portrait of courage, resilience and female solidarity.
Please join us each Thursday, January 2-February 20 at 6:30 pm in the Carnegie Room for a variety of human stories from here at home and around the world.
