On Wednesday, August 7, the Farmington Libraries will show the documentary film, “Children of God.” This event will take place at 7:00 p.m. at the Farmington Main Library at 6 Monteith Drive.
This summer, the Farmington Libraries has selected the book, Little Princes: One Man’s Promise to Bring Home the Lost Children of Nepal, by Conor Grennan as the title for our One Town, One Book program. This film will provide more background and context for the book.
“Children of God” exposes the social conditions of the suppressed Nepalese people through the plight of their children, where reverence for the old and dead far outweighs the care for the young and living. Experiencing their innocence and their hardship through songs, stories and heartbreaking living conditions, exposes the contradiction of the material world that rests upon perhaps the most spiritual culture on earth.
