First Friday Films presented by the Oregon City Public Library Oct. 3, Nov. 7 & Dec. 5 6:30 p.m. End of the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center, 1726 Washington St., Oregon City

Friday, October 3: Girl Rising The simple truth is that educating girls can transform societies. Join us for the film about the Girl Rising movement and the stories of girls from all over the world and what happens when they go to school.

Friday, November 7: Stuff The minimal role many men, including their own fathers, have played in families haunts the filmmaker and his friend, Phil. In Stuff, by Portland director Larry Johnson, a father and a father’s role in a family is viewed through the lens of the stuff he left behind. Larry Johnson will attend our screening and facilitate our conversation afterwards.

Friday, December 5: What would Jesus buy? Join us for a timely examination of the commercialization of Christmas in America with Reverend Billy and the Church of Stop Shopping Gospel Choir as they engage in a cross-country mission to save Christmas from Shopocalypse.
