Each quarter, we’ll watch a movie (ahead of the meeting, on our own time) and then get together to discuss. Think book club, but less time consuming!
We’ll put a Siren Soapbox spin on it by offering a challenge related to the movie we watched. For example, we watched Wild once, and challenged everyone to go on a solo hike. You never know what rabbit hole we’ll head down!
We meet via Zoom for about an hour and talk about our experience with the movie and the challenge.
Below are the movies we’ll be voting on for the January 24, 2023 meeting of Getting Reel with Siren Soapbox:
We look forward to chatting with you!
