Little House in Menlo Park is starting two documentary film series that will be held the first and third Wednesday of each month. The first Wednesday will be the "UNAFF for Seniors" short for United Nations Association Film Festival program, and on the third Wednesday there will be a "Cinema Conversation and Coffee" event.
UNAFF events are free and start at 1:30 p.m. Access the screening schedule for the first six months at is.gd/unaff498.
The Cinema Conversation and Coffee events will be held the third Wednesday of each month beginning in December; the first such program is scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 14. Cinema Conversation and Coffee starts at 1 p.m. and is free for Little House members or $3 for non-members.
Judy Adams is volunteering to organize the film series and said in a statement that she and Little House Program Coordinator Kamilah Najieb-Wachob are open to community suggestions.
"It's a great location with available parking, wonderful staff, and I already have a possible donation of a large screen and video equipment that we will be checking out in the facility later this fall," Adams said.
At 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 14, there will be screenings of two films by local filmmaker Dorothy Fadiman, who is scheduled to introduce them in person. Both are about women overcoming disabilities: "The Annie Gill Story: If Just One Person Believes in You" (15 min.), about a young blind and brain-injured woman's full life with the support of friends and family, and "Moment by Moment: The Healing Journey of Molly Hale" (56 min), the story of a determined woman's physical and psychological recovery from a spinal cord injury.
Little House is located at 800 Middle Ave. in Menlo Park.
