Nations featuring Mark Foreman, Sunday, May 7, 7:00pm, NCCC Family Center
The Middle East is an ancient land with a complicated narrative. Today in Northern Iraq, the story seems muddier than ever. A modern evil has brought devastation and genocide, pushing some of Iraq’s oldest people groups to the verge of extinction. In an effort to make sense of the story, Mark meets with ethnic minorities, ISIS survivors, and political and religious leaders. He also speaks to reformers who stand with the marginalized at the risk of their own lives: Jeremy Courtney of Preemptive Love Coalition, Dave Eubank of Free Burma Rangers, and United Nations advocate Jacqueline Isaac of Roads of Success.

2. FAITHKEEPERS: In the Middle East, the birthplace of Christianity, Christians and other minorities are being violently persecuted, driven out from their homes and killed. Their places of worship are being destroyed, and their history is being erased. Faithkeepers gives face and voice to the humanitarian crisis and genocide affecting millions in the Middle East as a result of religious and ethnic persecution. The film is a testament to the stories of the persecuted and an inspiring portrait of the human spirit. Using personal testimonies and original animation, the film exposes daily life for those facing violence and expulsion.
3. UNDIVIDED: An affluent, suburban church group revives the grounds of a deteriorating city school, providing a boost to hungry, homeless and at-risk teens.

4. MAMA RWANDA: MAMA RWANDA is a modern tale of working mothers told through the eyes of the unlikeliest women – those who lived through genocide. Drocella, a village wife, and Christine, a city widow, have traded subsistence living for a life of business innovation, sparking enlightenment and controversy among their communities. Set against the backdrop of national reconciliation, Drocella and Christine represent a new generation of women helping to turn post-genocide Rwanda into one of the top ten fastest growing economies in the world. Interspersed by commentary from Rwandan experts in women’s entrepreneurship, the film highlights the roles of education and access to capital in empowering women to overcome poverty through entrepreneurship. A universal, globally relevant tale, MAMA RWANDA is a deeply cinematic portrait of two mothers on a journey to build peace through prosperity creation.
