Two Gonzaga University organizations, the Gonzaga Institute for Action Against Hate and the Gonzaga Center for Law and Justice, will continue the War, Reconciliation, and Human Rights Film Series at the GU School of Law Barbieri Courtroom this month.
The second film in the series will be, “Liberia: An Uncivil War,” which provides an in-depth case study of one of the many brutal civil wars springing up in Africa. The film will begin at 6:30 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 21 and is free and open to the public.
“Liberia: An Uncivil War”places the current conflict in Liberia into an historical context stretching back nearly 200 years.
Filmmakers Jonathan Stack and Brabazon cover opposite sides of the conflict. Immediately prior to the film, Whitworth College politics and history Professor John Yoder will begin a discussion about Liberia focusing on his experiences there as a monitor for the recently held elections. At the completion of the movie, Yoder will facilitate a further conversation about the movie.
The March 28 film will be “Shake Hands with the Devil: The Journey of Romeo Dallaire” followed by the final film in the series, “Long Night’s Journey into Day” on April 18.
