The Armor of Light
Monday, April 11, 2016
The Sheen Center is proud to host a special screening of Fork Films’ documentary The Armor of Light, by Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Abigail E. Disney ( The Invisible War) and a post-screening Q&A
In a gripping portrait of courage, Disney follows the journey of a conservative Evangelical minister, Reverend Rob Schenck, trying to find moral strength to preach about the growing toll of gun violence in America. Along the way, Rev. Schenck meets Lucy McBath, the mother of Jordan Davis, an unarmed teenager who was shot and killed in Florida and whose story cast a spotlight on “Stand Your Ground” laws. The film follows these allies through their trials of conscience, heartbreak and rejection, as they bravely attempt to make others consider America’s gun culture through a moral lens and bring people, from across deep party lines, to find common ground.
Following the film, there will be a panel discussion with Disney, Rev. Schenck and Ms. McBath.
