Connections: The OLLI Documentary Film Series

CONNECTIONS: The documentary film series is an opportunity for OLLI students and guests to connect with many of today’s pressing issues via the penetrating perspectives of contemporary documentary films. As the name implies, the themes for the films will showcase the CONNECTIONS humans have with one another, with our environment (including technology), and with other species that share our planet.

CONNECTIONS takes a new turn given the pandemic and our need to continue social distancing. Films will be screened via Zoom. Following the film, participants can engage in a Zoom chat with the moderator and one another about the film’s content and impact, as well as raise questions for further exploration.
