Last night was the Providence screening of Invisible Children. To be completely honest, I wasn't expecting a great turn out. We weren't able to really promote the event until last week, and I figured that people might just be too busy, or forget.
But we had around 150 people show up. It was incredible. There were people standing because we ran out of chairs, and the team showing the film is even going to come back for 2 or 3 more screenings in the next couple of weeks.
All leading to the Global Night Commute. Basically, on April 29, all over the states, people are going to walk to their city center and sleep outside, in solidarity with the kids in Uganda who have to do it every night of their lives. It's going to be a peaceful thing - no one yelling or waving signs. Just bringing awareness. It should be really incredible.
So. There are still screenings of the film happening until the end of April. Check here. I'm positive that there is a screening somewhere near most of you. And if you're interested in the Global Night Commute, check here. Again, I'm sure most of you live near places where this is happening (Boise and Ithaca are even on the list). And again, if you just want to see the film, let me know...I'll send you a DVD (and Julie, I'll get one out to you asap).
