Join Infinite Possibilities International (IPI) and Rosedale Neighborhood Library for a free screening of Academy Award winning, TSOTSI. This movie is a jewel of a film. Though set in Johannesburg, South Africa, the story is unfortunately so universal that the film could have been made in any country in the world: the lost children of abusive parents who survive life by relying on crime fill the streets of the poor neighborhoods of all major cities. One night, in desperation, Tsotsi steals a woman's car. But as he is driving off, he makes a shocking discovery in the backseat.
Join Rosedale's Reel Reading Book Club!
Kids read a book. Then on the last Tuesday of each month, they watch the movie that the book inspired, or the movie that inspired the book. Kids can enjoy a brief group discussion as well!
Please call 202-727-5012 for details about the month's book selection.
