SCC to Host a Showing of the Movie, Playing for Change on March 6
The Southeastern Community College Students for Peace Club will host a special showing of Playing for Change: Peace through Music at the Burlington Public Library on Tuesday, March 6 at 6:30pm.
Playing for Change is a story of hope, struggle, and the power of music.
From post-apartheid South Africa through the ancient sites of the Middle East, to the remote beauty of the Himalayas and beyond, the movie’s producers traveled to film and record over 100 street musicians, using modern technology to create a mix in which the artists are essentially playing together.
SCC Peace Studies instructor, Sandy Krell-Andre says the message in the movie is powerfully moving.
“Playing for Change is truly one of the most inspirational films I’ve even seen. When we showed it last year, we had people singing along and even a few awestruck tears.”
Free popcorn and soft drinks will be available for attendees. The event is open to the public. A free-will offering will be collected for the Students for Peace club’s Peace Studies in Costa Rica class.
The follow-up movie, Playing for Change II, will be shown at SCC’s West Burlington campus in the Little Theater at 6:30pm on Tuesday, March 20.
