Other films @ CEU: I Am Sam, 11/11/08

Our colleagues from other departments organize film screenings too, and I think it’s a good idea to mention here at least some of these events. Well, here’s one:

The Human RightS Initiative [HRSI] Film Club is screening Jessie Nelson’s I Am Sam on Tuesday, November 11th – 6 PM, Auditorium. The screening is part of the Action Week for Tolerance.

I’ve seen the film some time ago and I liked it. Beyond the moral message, Sean Penn doesn’t spoil the bitter taste of marginality. One can only win so many battles; or so few. We all carry our own weight with us, but for the unfortunate this can easily mean carrying it to the point of sinking under it. Hope rests in the simple truth that we have the chance, and perhaps the duty, to keep each other afloat.
