The final “Being Human” film, “The Human Experience” will be shown on Monday, April 29 at 6 p.m. The story is of a band of brothers who travel the world in search of the answers to the burning questions: Who am I? Who is Man? Why do we search for meaning? Their journey brings them into the middle of the lives of the homeless on the streets of New York City, the orphans of Peru and abandoned lepers in the forests of Ghana, Africa. What the young men discover changes them forever. Through interviews and real life encounters the brothers are awakened to the beauty of the human person and the resilience of the human spirit. A light meal will be served and discussion will be facilitated by Deane Tucker, the filmmakers will also participate via Skype as well as WWC.
