LWVLC Big Picture December 14: For the Love of Trees
The League of Women Voters Leelanau County Big Picture will be held at the Old Art Building at 111 Main Street in Leland on Monday, December 14, 2015 at 4:00 PM. The Big Picture features films of public interest on current political/environmental and/or social justice topics on the 2nd Monday of the month from October through April.
The December film is set in the West Bank, where a Palestinian widow lovingly tends her lemon grove planted by her great grand parents. When the Israeli Defense Minister moves in across the way, the lemon trees are seen as a security risk and their removal is demanded. Refusing to bow down, she engages a lawyer to save her trees. The odds are stacked against her, but hope shines from an unexpected source.
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.
