The Antidote – Virtual Film Discussion

PRESENTED BY: Online Event
7:00 PM, Wednesday, November 18, 2020 PST

Made in response to the times we are living in, “The Antidote” weaves together stories of kindness, decency, and the power of community in America. It’s about everyday people who make the intentional choice to lift others up, despite the fundamentally unkind ways of our society, which are at once facts of life in America and yet deeply antithetical to our founding ideals.

Directed by Academy Award-nominee, Kahane Cooperman, and six-time Emmy winner, John Hoffman, “The Antidote” aims to drive a national conversation about the roles that kindness, decency, compassion and respect play in a civilized, democratic society. While it’s easy to court despair in the face of monumental, structural problems, “The Antidote” tells stories of compassionate people intentionally leveraging the resources within themselves and their communities to give others a chance at a better life. The film isn’t about an idea or a policy; it is about how we treat each other. It is about who we are.
