‘Amazing Grace’ screens at I-House

By February 28, 2011

“Amazing Grace,” a 2006 film directed by Michael Apted, will be screened Friday night at International House, Davis, as part of the International Film Series. There is no charge, but donations are gratefully accepted to help cover the cost of the DVD rental, facilities use, supplies and refreshments that are served at 7:30 p.m. The film begins promptly at 8 p.m. I-House is at 10 College Park.

For decades, William Wilberforce was the British Parliament’s prime mover in the battle to abolish the slave trade (the bill was passed in 1807). With Ioan Gruffudd as Wilberforce, “Amazing Grace” depicts his passionate efforts to stand up for what was right against formidable odds in the late 1700s.
