Special Movie Night at Church of the Foothills: “Common Threads: Stories from the NAMES Quilt”

Santa Ana, California (August 1, 2010) – The Church of the Foothills is very pleased to announce a special FREE screening of the Academy Award winning documentary “Common Threads: Stories from the NAMES Quilt.”

The screening will take place on Thursday August 19, from 7PM-9PM, in the Church of the Foothills Fellowship Hall.

Rob Epstein’s searing Oscar-winning documentary profiles six people who died of AIDS, helping to put a human face to an illness that, when this movie first aired, was cloaked in fear and mystery. Using the AIDS Memorial Quilt as his starting point, Epstein, with the help of narrator Dustin Hoffman’s dignity and gravitas, humanizes the disease and illustrates its carnage, showing how it devastates families and communities.

On Tuesday September 14th, Church of the Foothills will screen the Oscar nominated documentary “Food, Inc.”
