BU sheds light on Middle East through film

For immediate release: March 22, 2011

BLOOMSBURG — Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania will show the documentary, “Little Town of Bethlehem,” Monday, March 28, at 7 p.m. in Warren Student Services Center, room 004. The screening is open to the public free of charge.

The documentary brings to light the growing nonviolent movement in the Middle East that often goes unpublicized. It raises the question, “How will the violence in the Middle East ever be stopped?” by telling the story of three Middle Eastern men – a Palestinian Muslim, a Palestinian Christian and an Israeli Jew – who are willing to do anything in order to break the cycle of hate into which they were born.

Bloomsburg University is one of 14 universities in the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education. The university serves approximately 9,000 students, offering comprehensive programs of study in the colleges of Education, Business, Liberal Arts and Science and Technology.
