We will show the entire trilogy in the coming months. So you won’t want to miss this insightful film that was part the reason that Edward Snowden, who is Citizen Four reached out to her and also to reporter Glen Greenwald.  We bring films to Spring Hill that you would have to travel to bigger cities to see, or university towns.  Green Screens get you thinking !

Filmed in Baghdad, MY COUNTRY, MY COUNTRY tells the story of Dr. Riyadh, an Iraqi doctor, father of six and Sunni political candidate. An outspoken critic of the U.S. occupation, he is equally passionate about the need to establish democracy in Iraq, arguing that Sunni participation in the January 2005 elections is essential.
Yet all around him, Dr. Riyadh sees only chaos, as his waiting room fills each day with patients suffering the physical and mental effects of ever-increasing violence. Dramatically interwoven into the personal journey of Dr. Riyadh is the landscape of the US military occupation, private security contractors, American journalists and the UN officials who orchestrate the elections.
You’ll enjoy the wide screen & great sound system at the Zopp Memorial Library 9220 Spring Hill Drive and yes it is all fixed ! As ever, the public is invited. We will offer free refreshments, as always. Feel free to bring your own chairs, but seating is available  Please join us!
