Virtual Screening of A Towering Task
We are excited to announce that SEAPAX will be hosting a virtual screening of the movie A Towering Task! This is a documentary film that tells the Peace Corps story through powerful interviews with host country nationals, volunteers and staff, and scholars and journalists who put the story of the Peace Corps into context. Voices from all over the world share not only the work and impact, but also the challenges, of half a century of peacebuilding and diplomacy. You can find more information about the movie here.
On the day of the screening, we will also be hosting a question and answer session with the director of the film, Alana DeJoseph. Alana is a former Peace Corps Volunteer (Mali 1992-1994).
The film will be made available to stream for FREE on an UNLIMITED viewing basis on the day of the event for registered participants. You are encouraged to invite friends and family to register for this event so they can watch the film and learn more about the Peace Corps.

Time: Streaming available from 9a to 11:59p. A question and answer session with Alana DeJoseph will begin at 6p.
Streaming & Video-Conference Access: At 9a on the day of the event, registrants will be sent an email that contains a link and a password to stream the video on the Vimeo platform. The email will also provide details on how to access and participate in the Zoom video-conference with Alana DeJoseph.
