Join Nashville Public Television and the Gordon Jewish Community Center in the screening and discussion of THE VIOLINS OF HOPE. This is a beautiful haunting film that reveals a bright spot following one of the darkest chapters in history. For Jews during the Holocaust, there was little reprieve from the despair and horror surrounding them. But music--particularly that of violins, which hold an important role in Jewish culture--offered temporary solace and a glimmer of humanity. Narrated by Adrian Brody, the film follows the journey of Israeli violinmaker Amnon Weinstein in his efforts to restore violins recovered from the Holocaust.

Nashville Public Television and Conexion Americas are hosting a screening, panel and discussion of the documentary 120 Days produced by REEL SOUTH. Due to his immigration status, family man Miguel Cortes must make a tough choice. After an unexpected traffic stop, a North Carolina judge has offered Muguel 120 days to get his affairs in order and self-deport to Mexico--leaving his wife and two daughters. Will he do it, or disappear into the shadows in his adopted homeland?

Come join us for this timely documentary as it puts a face on the immigration debate and provides an opportunity to experience the journey of the Cortes family. 
The evening begins at 6:00 pm with refreshments as we screen and discuss the documentary with a notable panel. Don't miss it!

REEL SOUTH is a co-production of UNC-TV, South Carolina ETV, and the Southern Documentary Fund (SDF) with major funding provided by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
