Human Rights Watch Traveling Film Festival: Saints and Sinners
The Human Rights Watch Traveling Film Festival wraps up with Saints and Sinners, a fillm by Abigail Honor and Yan Vizinberg that documents the struggle of a gay couple determined to be married in the Catholic Church, and to be the first pair to have their wedding announcement published in The New York Times. There will be a discussion after the screening.
Saints and Sinners screens at 6pm Thursday, September 30 in the Science Lecture Hall at Trinity University. A critique and discussion session will follow. Admission is free. For more information, call Robert Huesca at 999-8169.
