SCARBOROUGH — A local volunteer group is hosting a screening and discussion of a film later this month about bridging political divides.

Scarborough Community Connections will show “The Reunited States” online for free from Feb. 21-28. The film, based on the book of the same name by Mark Gerzon, explores the nation’s political divides and polarization and promotes understanding and civil discourse.

Following the screenings, the group plans to hold two virtual discussions about the film on March 2 and March 6.

“We hope to offer opportunities to reflect on the causes of polarization and incivility in our own community with ideas and examples about how we can each become part of the solution,” promoters wrote in a statement. “Our aim is to enhance connections within the community through common experiences and conversations.”

The discussions are free, but registration is required by Feb. 13. To learn more, email [email protected]​.
