The Blue Hill Public Library and the Good Life Center are sponsoring a screening of the documentary film ‘Gabi Giffords Won’t Back Down’ on Thursday, June 8 at 7pm in the library’s Howard Room.
‘Gabi Giffords Won’t Back Down’ tells the extraordinary story of former Arizona Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, her relentless fight to recover following an assassination attempt in 2011, and her new life as one of the most effective activists in the battle for gun violence prevention and in promoting understanding of the language condition aphasia. Featuring extensive verité filming of Gabby and her husband, astronaut-turned-Senator Mark Kelly; interviews with Barack Obama and other friends and colleagues; and exclusive access to stunning videos taken in the weeks following her near-death experience, this film is the story of a rising star transformed by an act of violence, and a close-up portrait of the marriage that sustains her.
The screening is free and open to all. For more information, please call 374-5515 or email Assistant Director Kayleigh Thomas at firstname.lastname@example.org.
