Introducing the first annual Chicago OnScreen Local Film Showcase.

Join the Chicago Park District in celebrating Chicago filmmakers with screenings of locally-produced films in local parks.

Friday, September 5th will feature screenings of White Lotus Rising and The Peace Exchange at Ping Tom Memorial Park.
White Lotus Rising chronicles the social impact of the Ten Thousand Ripples project an art-based project for peace in Chicago Neighborhoods. The Buddha sculptures placed throughout the city as part of this project strive to elicit positive change for peace on social and psychological levels. The Peace Exchange tells the story of a similar quest, as a group of teens travel to Thailand and Burma with Chicago Peace Builders to engage with peace activists and social and spiritual leaders to learn how best to promote peace in Chicago.
