Here are a few of my top free screenings on Eventbrite that I think you will enjoy.

Son of God (2014)
February 27th 7:30 pm with other dates available.
"Created by Mark Burnett and Roma Downey (producers of the  Bible Series), the larger-than-life story of The New Testament gets a larger-than life treatment in this stand-alone feature. Including a rich orchestral score from Oscar®-winner Hans Zimmer, Portuguese actor Diogo Morgado portrays Jesus as the film spans from his humble birth through his teachings, crucifixion and ultimate resurrection. Son of God marks the first motion picture about Jesus’ life since Passion of the Christ, released ten years ago. More information on the film is available at"

Call Me Kuchu (2012)
February 6th 7:30 pm
"In Uganda, a new bill threatens to make homosexuality punishable by death. David Kato, Uganda’s first openly gay man, and retired Anglican Bishop Christopher Senyonjo work against the clock to defeat state-sanctioned homophobia while combatting vicious persecution in their daily lives. But no one is prepared for the brutal murder that shakes their movement to its core and sends shock waves around the world."

The Secret of Kells (2009)
May 4th 2:00 pm
"Adventure, action and danger await 12-year-old Brendan, who must fight Vikings and a serpent god to find a crystal and complete the legendary Book of Kells in this acclaimed animated film."

Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom (2013)
February 26th 5:30 pm
"This film is based on South African President Nelson Mandela's autobiography, which chronicles his early life, coming of age, education and 27 years in prison before becoming President and working to rebuild the country's once segregated society."

Deep South (2012)
February 10th 6:00 pm
"Beneath layers of history, poverty and now soaring HIV infections, four Americans redefine traditional Southern values to create their own solutions to survive. 'deepsouth' is a documentary about the new American South, and the people who inhabit its most quiet corners. Josh, a college student, seeks the support of an underground gay family hours away from his suffocating Mississippi Delta hometown. With no funds and few resources, Monica and Tammy try to unite reluctant participants at their annual HIV retreat in rural Louisiana. Kathie, an Alabama activist, spends 120 days a year on the road fighting a bureaucracy that continues to ignore the South."
