Second Saturday Documentary Series

June 10, 2023 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Start Filming!

The Second Saturday Documentary Series is presented by Niles Discovery Church. Each month a different documentary film is shown.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are unable to gather together to view and discuss this month’s documentary. We will watch the film together via Zoom with a discussion immediately following.

How to register for the viewing and discussion:

Step 1: If you registered for a past Zoom screening of our documentaries, you’re probably still registered. If you never have (or if you just want to make sure you are), click: bit.ly/SSDSZoom and register for the Zoom screening and discussion of the movie. Once you have registered, you will receive an email confirming your registration and your unique link to join the meeting. Save that email.

Step 2: On Saturday, March 11, around 1:25, click the link in your email to join the viewing and discussion.

June’s Film: Man on Fire

Man on Fire questions whether a Methodist minister’s protest changed anything.

Charles Moore was a 79-year-old Methodist minister. On June 23, 2014, he drove to an empty parking lot in his old hometown of Grand Saline, Texas, and set himself on fire. He left a note on his car’s windshield explaining that this act was his final protest the virulent racism of the community and his country at large.

Man on Fire goes back to Grand Saline – population 3,266 – to try to uncover the truth about the town’s ugly past and the fervor for God and justice that drove Moore to his shocking final act. This horrifying moment intertwines with a town’s history that almost no one seems to want to talk about.
