The movie explores genocide, political corruption, and the repercussions of violence.  As usual, the door at the It’s Your Move Games and Hobbies store located at 4920 Telegraph Avenue in the city’s Temescal District, will open at 6:30 p.m., a free dinner will be served at 7:00 p.m., and the movie will start promptly at 7:30 p.m.  Although a $20 donation is suggested, no donation is ever too big or small, and, as always, no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
