GREAT SPEECHES FROM A DYING WORLD

10 AM
Whitsell Auditorium at the Portland Art Museum – 1219 SW Park Ave
NO COST for high school students and teachers

In honor of National Poetry Month, we are exited to bring you our next FREE Global Classroom screening from Seattle filmmaker Linas Phillips. GREAT SPEECHES FROM A DYING WORLD follows Linas on a personal expedition as he befriends 12 homeless people in Seattle struggling with their unfortunate circumstances. Through the artifice of their reciting great speeches from history—from Shakespeare to JFK—we glimpse the nobility in their lives and a new context for the words and ideas themselves.

The film will be introduced by filmmaker Linas Phillips, and following the screening Linas will facilitate a Q & A with students and teachers.
