January 8, 1:00 pm Arranged (2007) & Paper Clips (2004) – Arranged: The film focuses on the friendship of an Orthodox Jewish woman and a Muslim woman who meet as first-year Brooklyn public school teachers. During the year they learn they share much in common, including that they are both going through the process of arranged marriages. Paper Clips: As part of the Holocaust education of the Whitwell Middle School in rural Tennessee, the children are struggling to grasp the enormity of 6 million Holocaust victims. The students collect six-million paper clips to better understand the extent of this crime against humanity. The film details how the students met Holocaust survivors from around the world and how the experience transformed them and their community.
