Join MINN's Education Committee and Nonviolent Peaceforce at St Anthony Main Theater on Tuesday, June 14th at 7pm for a screening of the documentary In Pursuit of Peace by Canadian director Garry Beitel. This event is open to the public with a suggested donation of $5.

From the filmmaker: "In Pursuit of Peace is a riveting feature documentary film that makes the case for unarmed civilian peacemaking and mediation as a response to violent international conflict. We follow four Canadian peacemakers as they take us inside the drama of their work in some of the word’s hottest conflict zones: land disputes in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the civil war in South Sudan, IDP camps with displaced minorities in Kurdistan, Northern Iraq, and stories of mediation in Darfur, Nepal, and Aceh."
