"Divided We Fall: Americans in the Aftermath (2008)," the first feature-length documentary film on hate violence following Sept. 11, 2001, will screen in 50 cities across the U.S. this month and one local showing this evening.
A screening is 6:30 p.m. today at St. Thomas Episcopal Church, 2100 Hilton Ave. The screening will be followed by a community dialogue session facilitated by Berrien Zettler of One Columbus, an interracial and interreligious group that fosters unity in Columbus.
"Divided We Fall" follows the journey of 20-year-old college student Valarie Kaur as she documents hate violence against Sikhs and Muslims in the immediate aftermath of Sept. 11, 2001 and examines the larger question of “who counts” as American.
On a two-year international tour, the film has won more than a dozen awards and reached 150 campuses and communities in 90 cities across the United States, according to a media release.
