Film Screening

EXETER – “Changes by Brushstrokes” (Cambios a Pinceladas) is a documentary about art and change in a Honduran community that was written and co-produced by Exeter native Meghan Haslam who has lived in Honduras since 2009. Meghan will be back in Exeter in early December and is bringing “Changes by Brushstrokes” to New Hampshire! Exeter Adult Education and We The People are sponsoring a free public screening of “Changes by Brushstrokes” including an introduction by Meghan and Q&A following the film on Thurs., December 12, at 7:00 p.m., in the Science Lecture Hall at the Tuck Learning Campus (old Exeter High School), 30 Linden Street, Exeter. (Enter through the atrium or door “D”.)

The film’s inspiration came from a young man from the US who was eager to find and to tell the ‘other story’ of Honduras - the story of people creating change, learning and inspiring hope. The 40-minute documentary with English subtitles follows a group of kids from a marginalized community as they create a public mural in response to the lack of environmental awareness there, as well as defying stereotypes of teens as troublemakers in their gang-ridden neighborhood. The film documents changes that happen not only on the wall, but in the kids and their community.

“Changes by Brushstrokes” is the opportunity to tell the story of a group of young people doing amazing things: believing in their community, the capacity for change and learning to believe in themselves as they create a mural.

Call 603-775-8456 for more details about this free screening. For background on the project go to the website: www.cambiosthefilm.com or follow it on Facebook at Changes by Brushstrokes.
