Preview screening Seattle to Uganda: A Journey of Hope and Health, April 15

We’re hosting a free, public screening of the half-hour documentary Seattle to Uganda: A Journey of Hope and Health, which follows a group of local women as they embark on a heartwarming journey to Aminocira – a small village in Northern Uganda.

The preview screening is 4 p.m., Sunday, April 15 at Seattle University’s Wyckoff Auditorium, Bannan Engineering Building, 901 12th Ave.

Come along as Seattle Channel’s Emmy-award winning Community Stories follows a group of women on an inspiring trip. In the fall of 2010, Seattle resident Maureen Brotherton invited 10 women—most of them unknown to each other – to join her on a journey to visit the women in Aminocira. Seattle documentary filmmaker Penny LeGate followed along as women from opposite sides of the globe forged a partnership that continues to inspire awareness, social change, health opportunities and hope for a better future.

Brotherton, LeGate and several of the women will reunite for the preview and a post-screening talk.

To attend, please RSVP to Lori Patrick or (206) 733-9764.
