Documentary Film Paper Clips
Documentary Film Paper Clips —Changing the World One Classroom at a Time Paper Clips is a true story about how the students and teachers of a middle school took on a project that grew to have a worldwide impact. It tells the moving story of how these students responded to the Holocaust with a promise to honor every soul lost by collecting one paper clip to represent each individual exterminated by the Nazis. The Acton Concord Chapter of Hadassah will present the documentary Paper Clips at three special free showings: Saturday, April 1 at 7 pm Marion Campbell Performing Arts Center Groton School Sunday, April 2 at 2 pm Acton-Boxborough Regional High School Auditorium Sunday, April 2 at 7 pm Groton Dunstable Performing Arts Center Groton Dunstable Middle School Edited by Natick’s Julia Dixon Eddy, the movie not only educates about the Holocaust, but addresses racism, prejudice and stereotyping of all kinds. It is an amazing example of a social action project started by one eighth grade class, which grew into a community-wide effort and changed the people of Whitwell, TN forever. On Sunday, April 2, Eddy will be a guest speaker at the 2 pm Acton program. Writer/co-producer/co-director Joe Fab will be at all three screenings to speak about the movie as well as current human rights and justice issues. There is no admission charge, and directions can be found online at www.hadassah-paperclips.org. Paper Clips is also available to rent through NetFlix and video stores.
