William Peace University Lecture Series: Jonathan Dickinson & "Father Spirit"
Tue Feb 12th, 2013
06:00 p.m. - 09:00 p.m.
William Peace University presents a screening of "Father Spirit" with filmmaker Jonathan Dickinson on Feb. 12, 2013 at 6 p.m. in Kenan Auditorium.
"Father Spirit" is the story of Jonathan's hopeful effort to connect with his terminally ill father, Peter, during one last epic journey.
After Peter is put into assisted living, Jonathan is unwilling to accept his father's confinement within the four walls of the nursing home. Against all odds and conventional wisdom, Jonathan decides to become his father's caregiver and takes him to one of the world's most rugged and majestic countries -- India 00 where Jonathan already had friends.
As son and father take this uncertain journey, Peter contends with the late stages of the brutal, degenerative Huntington's Disease.
This screening and lecture is made possible through The Betty Lou Fletcher Goodmon Visiting Scholars Fund at William Peace University.
