ScreenPeace Film Festival 2016: The Pearl Button


Location: Browning Cinema, DeBartolo Performing Arts Center

The Pearl Button

Chile, with its 2,670 miles of coastline, the largest archipelago in the world, presents a supernatural landscape. In it are volcanoes, mountains and glaciers. In it are the voices of the Patagonian indigenous people, of the first English sailors and also those of its political prisoners. Some say that water has memory. This film shows that it also has a voice.

This film is part of the annual ScreenPeace Film Festival, presented by the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies. The festival features six critically acclaimed films that highlight a range of compelling issues related to peace and justice.

All films are free, but ticketed. To reserve tickets, please call the box office at 574.631.2800 or visit
