Preview & discussion of the film "Pushing the Elephant."

When civil war came to Rose’s Congolese village, she was separated from her five-year-old daughter, Nangabire. Rose managed to escape with nine of her 10 children and was eventually resettled in Phoenix, Arizona. More than a decade later, mother and daughter are reunited in the U.S. where they must come to terms with the past and build a new future.

Representatives from the Vermont Refugee Resettlement Program will be on hand for a discussion following the film.

“Pushing the Elephant” premieres on Vermont Public Television on Friday, April 1, at 10 p.m. 

Community Cinema is a presented locally as a partnership between VPT, Brattleboro Museum and Art Center, Brattleboro Community TV, Catamount Arts, the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts, and the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at UVM
