From India With Love - Film Screening 06/05/17
From India with Love is a documentary film about six Americans from diverse backgrounds who embarked on an epic 10-day journey to India in March 2016. The common denominator that binds them in this story is their unique exposure to violence and their desire to reinvigorate the conversation about nonviolence in America.
The group included: a single mother whose son was brutally murdered in a tragic school shooting (Sandy Hook, Connecticut) and her best friend, a former gang member (Los Angeles, California), an educator (Newark, New Jersey), a social entrepreneur and a music scholar (both Black Lives Matter activists from Oakland, California).This group of kindred spirits is led on the pilgrimage by a meditation teacher and peace activist steeped in Eastern spiritual traditions, who has lived and worked in the Western world for over 20 years.
The film shows how this trip to India renews their spirit and reaffirms their desire to open up a conversation about nonviolence: How nonviolence is an effective tool in curbing the destructive actions that destroys families, communities and debilitates nations. That violence cannot be answered with more violence and that it starts with conversation.
