The League of Women Voters Leelanau County Big Picture Society will be held at the Old Art Building at 111 Main Street in Leland on Monday,December 8, 2014 at 4:00 PM.  The Big Picture Society features  films of public interest on current political/environmental and/or social justice topics on the 2nd Monday of the month from October through June.

The December 8th film is an Academy Award-nominated account of a true-life wartime event that would offer hope for peace in mankind’s darkest hour. The film captures a rare moment of grace from one of the worst wars in the history of mankind, World War I. On Christmas Eve, 1914, as German, French, and Scottish regiments face each other from their respective trenches in No Man’s Land, a musical call-and-response turns into an impromptu cease-fire, trading chocolates and champagne, playing soccer, and comparing pictures of their wives.  1 hr, 56 min. film.

There is no fee for the movie but good will donations to the LWVLC will be accepted. You may bring refreshments to share. No alcohol allowed.
