Movie and a Meal- Healing Words: Poetry and Medicine

When: Fri., March 15, 6 p.m. 2013

Healing Words: Poetry and Medicine (2008) is a 60-minute documentary about individuals who recover psychologically and physically from illnesses that changed their lives. The film validates expressive art in medical settings that build doctor-patient relationships and becomes a supportive healing companion. Viewers will be touched by the compassion shown in this powerfully poignant documentary. We provide a simple meal to share before the movie that consists of hearty soup and whole grain bread, along with popcorn, wine, and non-alcoholic beverages. We gather at 6:00 for the meal; the movie begins about 7:00 pm. Bring your friends and family!

Price: A suggested donation of $5-$10 is requested to cover the cost of the movie royalty fees and refreshments.
