On Sept. 11, 2001, the lives of two young mothers living in the Boston suburbs were changed beyond belief. Both women lost their husbands in the terrorist attacks on that unforgettable day.

Rather than turning inwards, grief compelled the women to travel to Afghanistan to help empower Afghan women whose lives have been ravaged by decades of war, poverty and oppression. As they make the courageous journey from their comfortable suburban neighborhoods to the most desperate Afghan villages, they discover an intense bond with each other, and also a powerful kinship with widows halfway around the world.

This film, Beyond Belief, is the story of these two amazing, courageous women and their mission of compassion, peace, and hope. Khaled Hosseini, author of The Kite Runner has described this film as "moving and beautiful." It is a powerful, inspirational, and profound film which shows us all the way to move beyond tragedy.

After screening a 45 minute excerpt from the film, we will be joined by the film's director. Beth Murphy is a documentary producer, director, author and university professor. In 1999 she founded Principle Pictures, an independent film company committed to giving voice to the voiceless, raising awareness about important social issues, and inspiring education and action through entertainment. She has led production crews to all corners of the world, often in war-torn or developing countries in order to focus on human rights and international issues.

Beth will lead a discussion about her experience in making Beyond Belief, and answer your questions.
