Films For Action and Lawrence Percolator is excited to be hosting a film screening of DRYING FOR FREEDOM at Liberty Hall on Monday May 6th, 7pm.

Admission will be $4 or $2 with a current student ID. Hope this is affordable and enticing for everyone to come and bring some friends! :)

WATCH THE TRAILER:

 Films For Action has been on a hiatus lately on the local scene, focusing on our international growth via new city chapters and website reach, but we're looking forward to this being the first of many more screenings to come in 2013.

As some of you might know, for the last several years, Films For Action's local screening efforts have been primarily made possible via one person (me), Tim Hjersted (hey what's up? :). With this screening, I've got help from KH, who took the lead in contacting me to help organize this.

So long story short, we've got a small logistical team behind these screenings, so the success of these events really rely on you, and all of our awesome 1000+ members to help us promote each event, tell and invite your friends, and generally get the buzz going so we can get a great turnout.

Thanks for all you do!
