PURPLE: Virtual Screening Discussion


Did you know a study found 1 in 6 Americans stopped speaking to a family member or close friend after the 2016 election?

Barrington Public Library invites you to a Virtual Screening of PURPLE on Thursday, February 4 at 7 pm via Zoom. Following the screening will be an interactive discussion and workshop facilitated by a trained mediator, Helen Kramer of Resetting the Table.

At a time of immense division, PURPLE tells the story of Americans with opposing viewpoints confronting their disagreements head-on and discovering the concerns and humanity that lie behind each other's positions.

A collaboration between Resetting the Table, a leading political mediation organization, and Landon Van Soest, an Emmy award-winning filmmaker, PURPLE presents a rare political conversation that uplifts, provokes, and inspires while going toward the heat of passionate political differences. Filmed in rural Wisconsin and Iowa—in a swing region within two bordering swing states—PURPLE models what healthy public debate on fault-line issues can look like.
