Description

 A documentary film inspiring Ridgefielders to love one another. Join your community members for either of two showings of the inspirational independent documentary, Weapons of the Spirit.      

"This documentary will provide our guests with the opportunity to consider the power of normal people caring for their neighbors," suggests Rev. Whitney Altopp of St. St. Stephen's Episcopal Church, the film's sponsor. "I hope it stirs dialogue and plants seeds for communities such as Ridgefield to take positive action in today's tension-filled social climate."

The documentary tells the story of the rescue operation in and around the village of Le Chambon-sur-Lignon in France during World War II. Some 5000 people owe their lives to the Chambonnais. The vast majority of the rescued were Jews. The film won the DuPont-Columbia Award for Broadcast Journalism (sharing it with Ken Burns's series The Civil War) as well as numerous other awards and accolades.

Ticketed showings (donation-only purchase price) are offered through Eventbrite. Click the link below:

The SNEAK PREVIEW of the remastered 2017 edition of Weapons of the Spirit will take place at the Prospector Theater on noon on Saturday April 22 and Sunday April 23.
