In honor of the Peace Corps' 60th anniversary, we present "A Towering Task." Directed by Alana DeJoseph and narrated by Annette Bening, this documentary tells the story of the agency's remarkable history while considering its future. As the Peace Corps rebuilds with increased nationalistic tendencies in America and around the globe, and with Peace Corps volunteers at the forefront of some of the most pressing themes facing the global community, this film asks: What role should the Peace Corps play in the 21st century?
Light refreshments will be provided. A brief discussion will follow the film.
Co-sponsored by the Central Missouri Returned Peace Corps Volunteers. Learn more at the film's website, www.peacecorpsdocumentary.com.
