Events | Young Professionals

*You will need to buy a ticket for the movie ($9). The movie will be shown in one location, but the discussion will occur in another. Also, there will be free beer. Details below*

For this month's CULT event, we are going to attend a showing of a documentary called Landfill Harmonic (84 min.) at Whitsell Auditorium in the Portland Art Museum as a part of the Reel Music Festival. Afterward we will walk five minutes to McMenamins Market Street Pub to get some drinks and discuss the movie.

Movie synopsis: Landfill Harmonic follows the Recycled Orchestra of Cateura, a Paraguayan musical youth group of kids that live next to one of South America’s largest landfills. This unlikely orchestra plays music from instruments made entirely out of garbage. When their story goes viral, the orchestra is catapulted into the global spotlight. With the guidance of their music director, they must navigate this new world of arenas and sold out concerts. However, when a natural disaster devastates their community, the orchestra provides a source of hope for the town. The film is a testament to the transformative power of music and the resilience of the human spirit.

Ticket Info: Tickets are $9 and can be bought here

Discussion afterward: After the movie, we will meet up outside the theater and walk over to the McMenamins Market Street Pub (directions). We will have a sign that makes it easy to identify us. We will have a free form discussion of the movie.

Free Beer!: At the pub, we will buy the first round. 

CULT, A text-speak acronym for "C U Last Tuesday", is a new, monthly program put on by the Young Professionals of the World Affairs Council. The content and format of the event changes from month to month, but what doesn't vary is the promise to entertain, educate and broaden your horizons. So, invite your friends and we will see you on the last Tuesday of every month.
