The Beverly Hills Library Launches Reel Conversations

The Beverly Hills Public Library is kicking off a documentary film series called Reel Conversations on Oct. 2 in the library auditorium at 1 p.m.  The three documentary films in the series provide an opportunity to meet with filmmakers and ask questions.  

 “Reel Conversations provides information to our community about unique stories of diversity and inclusion and facilitate conversations around these issues.  These are outstanding and award-winning documentaries which explore important issues in today’s society,” said Beverly Hills Public Library Administrator Karen Buth. 

The first film of the series, “Orchestrating Change,” is a film about the world’s only orchestra for people living with mental illness. The Q&A session with the filmmaker will follow the screening, and will include the founders of the orchestra and musician featured in the film.   

Screening on Oct. 23 is “Lives Well Lived,” a film encompassing over 3,000 years of experience where diverse people share their secrets and insights to living a meaningful life. And, on Nov. 6, “Far East Deep South” is an immigrant story, a Southern story, and an American story about a family in search of their roots.
