Event Details

Lessons of Basketball and War is an uplifting documentary about a dedicated educator at Portland’s Hosford Middle School, who uses the game of basketball to bring unity to a group of Muslim refugee girls from war-torn Somalia as they struggle to overcome ethnic hostility and violence. The film follows a year in the lives of these refugee girls. Ron Bourke, the film’s Award-winning Director, will join us for a discussion after the screening.
