Join East Cooper Montessori Charter School’s sixth-grade Montessori Model United Nations participants for a screening of an award-winning documentary Sunday, Nov. 17 at 2 p.m. at Cinnebarr about the power of young people to bridge political divides and forge peaceful relationships.
The film, “My So-Called Enemy,” follows the story of six Palestinian and Israeli girls who participated in the cultural exchange program Building Bridges for Peace. The film documents how these young people’s lives were changed by coming to know their “enemies” as peers and friends.
The event is a fundraiser for EMMUN delegates who will travel to New York in April to participate in the U.N. conference. Tickets are $10 per adult and $8 per youth. A limited number of seats are available. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your ticket. Remaining tickets will be sold on a first come, first served basis the group’s table at the movie, not the box office.
