NEW ORLEANS COMMUNITY CINEMA presents a free screening of: PUSHING THE ELEPHANT by Beth Davenport & Elizabeth Mandel

When civil war came to Rose’s Congolese village, she was separated from her five year old daughter, Nangabire. Rose managed to escape with nine of her 10 children and was eventually resettled in Phoenix, Arizona. More than a decade later, mother and daughter are reunited in the U.S. where they must come to terms with the past and build a new future. (60 minutes)
