Lunch & Learn: Dina (Kzoo)

April 18 @ 12:00 PM - 2:30 PM

Dina movie coverJoin us for this session of our MOVIE + LUNCH + DISCUSSION Series. This time we are watching the documentary, Dina.

Please RSVP to Miranda (269) 345-1516 x120 and let us know if you need an accommodation to participate or have any dietary requirements.

Dina, who is autistic, is getting married in a few weeks and there’s still so much to do. She has to move her boyfriend, Scott, who is also on the spectrum, from his parents’ house to her apartment, and settle him in to only the second home he’s ever had, all while juggling his schedule as an early morning Walmart door greeter. She has to get her dress, confirm arrangements with the venue, and make peace with her family, who remain nervous for their beloved Dina after the death of her first husband and the string of troubled relationships that followed. Throughout it all, in the face of obstacles large and small, Dina remains indomitable. She’s overcome tragedy and found the man she wants and, at age 48, is bent on building the life for herself that she believes she deserves. Dina is unstoppable, a force of nature, and as the star of her own life story, she’s an unconventional movie protagonist the likes of which hasn’t been seen before.

NOTE: this is a real-life documentary and contains mature content including themes of sexuality and domestic violence.

This is a fragrance-free environment. Please do not wear perfume, cologne or other scented products to these events.

Note that this event is also being held on Tuesday, April 24, in St. Joseph — pick the date and location that works best for you.
