Movies for change

Surrey Libraries is hosting a series for people interested in watching and talking about thought-provoking films.

Movies for Change, to be held on three Saturdays at the Semiahmoo Library in South Surrey, gets underway Jan. 25 with The Greatest Movie Ever Sold, a film that explores product placement, marketing and advertising.

Feb. 15 is to feature The Great Debaters. It is based on the true story of Prof. Melvin Tolson, who inspired a championship debate team in the Jim Crow south.

On March 8, No Impact Man will air. The documentary follows the Manhattan-based Beavan family as they try to live a year making no environmental impact.

All of the screenings begin at 1:30 p.m., with discussion to follow. Doors open at 1 p.m. Children younger than 13 years must be accompanied by an adult.

The library is located at 1815 152 St.
