On the evening of Friday, May 17, people will gather at Berrien UU Fellowship and across the country with their families, friends and neighbors to watch the Grand Premiere of Better Angels: Reuniting America, broadcast from where it all began just outside of Lebanon, Ohio.

The live showing will begin at 8:30 pm ET. Following the hour-long documentary, there will be a Q&A with film director and four-time Emmy award-winner Jim Brown, film producer and musician Peter Yarrow, Better Angels President David Blankenhorn, and red and blue Ohio documentary stars Greg Smith and Kouhyar Mostashfi (pictured here).

Better Angels: Reuniting America shows 8 Democratic-leaning voters and 7 Republican-leaning voters moving through a Better Angels signature Red/Blue workshop, from initial skepticism to more profound understanding and empathy. You’ll get an inside look at how a Democratic voter went from threatening to cut off relationships with Trump voters to becoming dear friends with one—and how a Republican voter moved from disdaining progressives to taking co-leadership with one in a movement that now spans the country. It’s a great way to introduce your family, friends, and neighbors to Better Angels and our shared mission of depolarization.
