Join us for a special screeing of the John Ford classid film, The Grapes of Wrath, starring Henry Fonda. This film does an excellent job of portraying the hearbreaking story of one family’s journey from the Dust Bowl of Oklahoma to the “promised land” in hope of work in the plentiful fields of California’s peach orchards and vineyards.

True to John Steinbeck’s novel and filmed effectivelly in black and white photography, this film inspires us to work together during tough times.  Film will be followed by discussion with NH filmmaker, Samantha Davidson-Green.*
