“The Singing Revolution” is a colorful documentary film about peaceful protests by Estonians desiring independence. Huge crowds gathered in public places to sing illegal patriotic songs but never resorted to violence. In 1991, Estonia did break away from the Soviet Union. They were one of the first nations to do so.
The film will be screened at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, December 11, at El Paso’s Mother Teresa Center, 2400 East Yandell Drive. A brief discussion will follow. This is part of a series of topical films sponsored by Pax Christi El Paso and the Peace and Justice Ministry of the Catholic Diocese of El Paso. Admission is free. Information: (915) 740-3962.
