Oceanside CA— The Oceanside Public Library is proud to host a series of PBS Point of View (POV) documentaries as part of a continuing series, Citizen of the World. This series runs through June on the third Wednesday of the month at 5:30 p.m., and will feature notable documentaries with civic reflection discussions to follow. These films will be screened at the Oceanside Public Library Civic Center Community Rooms at 330 N Coast Highway in Oceanside.
Please join us this Wednesday, April 15 for Beyond Hatred, a moving film that documents the mourning of twenty-nine-year-old François Chenu. The acclaimed French vérité film Beyond Hatred is the story of a crime’s aftermath and of the Chenu family’s brave and heartrending struggle to seek justice while trying to make sense of pointless violence and unbearable loss. With remarkable dignity, they fight to transcend hatred and the inevitable desire for revenge.
The Oceanside Public Library celebrates a diverse Oceanside community and works to awaken a sense of cultural belonging. We also strive to promote civic participation and reflection by encouraging dialogue and promoting informed decisions about current issues. PBS Point of View features independent non-fiction films that highlight social issues. Through working with PBS POV for the Citizen of the World documentary series, Oceanside Public Library is able to expand on those goals.
This free series is sponsored by the Friends of the Oceanside Public Library and is a collaboration with the award-winning documentary series POV (www.pbs.org/pov). For more information, please visit the library’s website at http://www.oceansidepubliclibrary.org or call (760) 435-5600.
