|Location:||Rockport Opera House|
|Description:||The Camden Conference, in partnership with the Rockport Public Library, are excited to show the 2017 documentary Waiting for the Sun.
In China more people are on death row than the rest of the world combined. The children of the convicts are often left alone, stigmatized and living in the streets. Some of these abandoned kids however do find a place they can temporarily call home. Grandma Zhang, as the kids call her, is a former prison guard who has founded an orphanage in Nanzhao. Here they learn to live a life without parents and prepare for the outside world, to prove the misconceptions about them wrong. We learn to understand the climate and the political issues of the Chinese system through Grandma Zhang, but the main stories of loss, shame, and hope are told through the children.
This film will be shown at the Rockport Opera House on Saturday, November 17th at 2:00pm. This event is free and open to all.
