"Codename: Butterflies" Documentary Showing

Join us for this 63-minute documentary telling the powerful story of the Mirabal sisters of the Dominican Republic. In the 1950s, three sisters who were known by their secret name of "Butterflies," created a resistance movement against one of the most bloodthirsty tyrants the world has ever known. Today, the Dominican Republic owes much to these incredible women who were willing to sacrifice everything and to fight for what they believed in. The documentary interweaves interviews with witnesses to the story, including surviving Mirabal family members, their co-revolutionaries, teachers, friends, and colleagues, with dramatic recreations and archival footage. Free admission. Free refreshments.
