Roane State Community College’s International Education Department will screen the award-winning documentary “Give a Damn?” on Thursday evening at the Oak Ridge campus.
The 90-minute film tells the story of three friends who attempt to live in poverty on $1.25 a day as they journey across three continents. The adventure turns devastating when two of them survive a deadly plane crash in Africa, and all three must fight to finish what they started.
The film was named best documentary at the St. Louis Filmmakers Showcase, won a Visionary Award at the Awareness Film Festival in Los Angeles, and has been an official selection for additional film festivals.
The screening starts at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at Roane State’s Oak Ridge campus at 701 Briarcliff Ave. Filmmakers Dan Parris, Rob Lehr and David Peterka will discuss the film and answer questions. Admission is free, and the event is open to the public.
