A Closer Walk

A few of my friends and I will be hosting a screening of the movie “A Closer Walk” at 7pm on March 30th at Pollack Tempe Cinemas. The screening will be free of charge and anyone who is interested in seeing this film is invited to attend.

For those of you who may not know, “A Closer Walk” is a movie directed by Robert Bilheimer, an academy award nominated documentary film maker. As the films website states, “A Closer Walk is the first film to depict humankind’s confrontation with the global AIDS epidemic,” and it does so in a powerful and heartbreaking manner.

Our hope is that you come and learn about how HIV/AIDS is impacting millions upon millions of people throughout our global community. Also, we hope that this film might help compel us to step into this issue with a heart of service and justice.

Here is a list of my friends/bloggers who are all a part of making this screening happen: Justin Narducci, Zack Newsome, Kelli Newsome, David Mulhern, Jamie Mulhern, Brandon Willey.

We hope you can come to the screening and be a part of this event with us.

  1. Any chance of getting a screening here in South OC? We would host it if need be. Our church community has been going through a training to be linked with people in our area with HIV/AIDS, just to offer some dignity and love and assistance. Have this feeling that this is what Jesus would be doing… so we want to do the same.

  2. Zach –

    The director held a private screeing of A Closer Walk in K.C. before it was released (2003?), the reason being, is that he features 3 US cities and KC is on of them and all of the K.C. AIDS service providers, one of which I work for, were invited.

    What a powerful (and sad) documentry, you will be moved ! ! !

    Be Well, Doug
