Quilted Conscience screenings November 13 & 15
Quilted Conscience is a documentary about the welcoming of cultural diversity in Grand Island. This documentary portrays a remarkable bond formed between a group of 16 Sudanese-American girls and a quilter’s guild, coming together to create something spectacular.
Join us at one of two special screenings with John Sorensen, the film’s director, and artist Peggie Hartwell.
Date: Tuesday, November 13
Time: 7:00 PM
Location: University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Student Union, 1400 R Street
Peggie Hartwell, a master quiltmaker, helps to “stitch” these two groups together in creating a quilt, depicting the girl’s memories of Africa and their dreams of America. Quilted Conscience shows the incredible experience of two groups of women coming together and understanding that they have more similarities than differences through the work in their hands.
The film’s director John Sorensen, director and founder of the Abbott Sisters Project, and master quilt maker Peggie Hartwell are coming to Nebraska for these special screenings of Quilted Conscience next week.
Join us in welcoming and celebrating cultural diversity!
A special thanks to the Creighton Center for Service and Justice and UNL students for hosting the screenings!
