Centretown Movies – Emmanuel’s Gift

Emmanuel's GiftJuly 27, 2012 (9:00pm) at Dundonald Park (512 Somerset Street West)

FTOÉ has partnered with Engineers Without Borders Ottawa City Network to present Emmanuel’s Gift through Centretown Movies. On July 27th, come to Dundonald Park (Somerset between Bay and Lyon) to watch an outdoor screening of this acclaimed movie. Emmanuel’s Gift outlines the life of one young man in Africa who is born with a disability within a society that tells him he can’t overcome it.

Narrated by Oprah Winfrey, this is the story of a disabled orphan whose father abandoned him, whose village dismissed him and whose country thought him better off dead. This is the story of Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah, who had nothing, but gave everything–and changed a nation forever.
