Short Attention Span Cinema – “Breaking Bread” from StoryCorps

Monday, November 8 - Thursday, December 9, 2021

The Great Thanksgiving Listen is a project to collect the voices of this country and to transform the holidays into a time of intergenerational listening and sharing. The concept is simple: honor someone in your life – a grandparent, a sibling, a mentor, or a friend – with a StoryCorps interview. You may be surprised; The conversations that result may sound just like some of these animated stories. A different film on the theme of “Breaking Bread” plays each week before our regular features – see schedule below.

StoryCorps is an independent nonprofit organization with a mission to preserve and share humanity’s stories in order to build connections between people and create a more just and compassionate world.
