A Towering Task: The Story of the Peace Corps (2019)

Friday, November 5, 2021
A Towering Task: The Story of the Peace Corps New at the Browning
Directed by Alana DeJoseph
Not Rated, 107 min, DCP

Founded during the Cold War, the Peace Corps stands as an icon of American idealism. From the beginning, its mission of world peace and friendship proved to be a towering task. Imbued with the unbounded energy and vision of its charismatic leader, Sargent Shriver, and thousands of vigorous volunteers, the story of the Peace Corps is a uniquely American tale and one with roots on Notre Dame's campus.

From the political machinations to establish not just a brand new government agency, but a new concept in international relations, to the growing pains of an agency striving to define its mission, A Towering Task takes viewers on a journey of global citizenry.
