Join us for a screening of LISTENING IS AN ACT OF LOVE
On Thursday, January 16, 6:00 p.m., the Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for Arts & Humanities in the College of Liberal Arts at Auburn University will screen Point Of View’s Listening is an Act of Love: A StoryCorpsSpecial (30 minutes) at the Auburn Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (450 East Thach Avenue). The screening is free and open to the public.
The first-ever animated special from StoryCorps celebrates the transformative power of listening. Listening Is an Act of Love features six stories from 10 years of the innovative oral history project. Each story reflects StoryCorps founder Dave Isay's fundamental belief: "We can learn so much about the people all around us — even about the people we already know — just by taking the time to have a conversation." Framing these intimate conversations from across the country is an interview between Isay and his 9-year-old nephew, Benji. As always, the selections provoke both tears and laughter — and highlight the simple joy found in sitting together and asking life's important questions.
Margaret Fitch-Hauser, associate professor in the School of Communication & Journalism will lead a discussion after the film. Refreshments will be served.
PBS’s POV is television's longest-running showcase for independent non-fiction films. The screening is sponsored by the Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for Arts & Humanities in the College of Liberal Arts at Auburn University and the Auburn Unitarian Universalist Fellowship.
