Cabot Convos—Feb. 10, 6-8 p.m. (PDR)

"I haven't seen American Sniper, but correct me if I'm wrong: An occupier mows down faceless Iraqis but the real victim is his anguished soul," tweeted author Max Blumenthal. American Sniper has brought both controversy and extreme box office success (close to $90 million opening weekend). Does Hollywood have a responsibility beyond the bottom line? Can a war movie be apolitical? Join us, even if you haven't seen the movie, for a broader discussion on the media portrayal of war, soldiers, and Islamaphobia.


Cabot Convos is a series of informal dinner discussions designed to allow people with different opinions to come together and learn form each others' perspectives. All are welcome to attend and contribute to the conversation or just listen. Contact Dean Itani for questions, concerns, or accommodations
