Womens Group Movie Night

Sunday, February 7th at 7:30pm

Women's Group Movie Night!!
Sunday, February 7th at 7:30pm

COS-SJCC Women’s Group is sponsoring a new program, open to all: the Movie Club.

The format is similar to a book club: you watch the movie on your own, whenever is convenient for you.  Then we gather via Zoom on a Sunday evening at 7:30 pm to discuss the film.  All films chosen for our first season are available on Kanopy, a free online film library available via most towns’ public libraries. 

Our next film, to be discussed on Sunday February 7, is Censored Voices, a documentary from 2015; length 1 hour 24 minutes.  It’s based on recordings of soldiers after the Six Day War in 1967, censored until recently, with interviews of the same soldiers now. 

Movie Night Info and Kanopy Instructions Click on this link.
If your public library does not offer Kanopy, please contact jillharriscpa@comcast.net for a work-around.
