‘War Dance’ movie an inspiration

The League of Women Voters Leelanau County’s “Big Picture Society” will be held at 4 p.m. Monday in the Old Art Building.

The Big Picture Society features films of public interest on the second Monday of the month from October through June.

“War Dance” is an award-winning film about a group of children from war-ravaged northern Uganda whose love of music and dance brings joy, excitement and hope back into their poverty-stricken lives. Invited to compete in a prestigious music and dance festival in their nation’s capital, their historic journey is an opportunity to regain a part of their childhood and a stirring tale about the power of the human spirit to triumph against tremendous odds.

There is no fee for the movie but donations to the LWVLC will be accepted. Participants may bring refreshments to share. No alcohol is allowed.
