Elahe Amani, student affairs director of technology, will provide commentary and context to a Sept. 30 screening of the film “Kandahar” at the Fullerton Public Library.

The film follows an Afghan-born Canadian journalist who returns to her homeland in a desperate attempt to reach her sister who threatens suicide because of her circumstances under the Taliban. The 2:30 p.m. screening is one of nine events hosted by the library as part of their “One Book, One Community” campaign.
Amani, a member of the campus community since 1999, has served as chair of the Coalition of Women from Asia and the Middle East and a member of the Women’s Intercultural Network (WIN).  In 2001, the Iranian-born Amani was honored by Soroptimist International of Westminster as one of it’s Women of Distinction for her efforts on behalf of the human rights status of women.  
This program is one of nine events for the Fullerton Public Library’s One Book, One Community campaign from Sep. 5 to Oct. 17.  For more information call 714-773-5719 or go to www.fullertonlibrary.org.
